How to Make Announcements

June 1, 2019

Hello Residents! The purpose of the "News" tab on the website is to publicize events, activities, and news that is relevant to the entire dorm. Any resident of McCormick is allowed to make an announcement.

Make announcements to the dorm by scrolling to the bottom of the website and clicking on "Login using Touchstone." In its place after you are logged in, you will see a section called "Content Management" which will have a hyperlink "Create a news article." By clicking on it, a popup will come up for you to create your announcement to the dorm. After hitting save, you can preview your announcement in the "News" tab of the website and "Recent News" section of the homepage. The "Recent News" section will only display 140 characters of your announcement to minimize space. To create a relevant summary, click on "edit summary" next to the heading "Body" to create your own stylized summary. Otherwise, the website will generate one for you. Please use this wisely.

Announcements should be relevant to McCormick and its residents. Feel free to advertise events that target McCormick residents and publicize McCormick residents' achievements in these announcements.
