Using the ISU Event Calendar

The Trumba calendar system has many features that allow users to find and share campus events.

Events can be sorted by type and audience.

Events can be added to your personal calendar (Google calendar, Outlook, etc.)

It can even send you emails or text messages to remind you of specific events.

Submitting an Event

View of Submission form

Submitter information: if there is a problem with or question about your submission, we need to be able to contact you. Name and email are required.


Event Information: Details about the event will make it easier for users to find your event and give them the information they need to know.

Give a specific location for your event. 'To be announced' locations will not be approved.

Events can be repeated daily, weekly, monthly, or annually. Events with irregular repetitions will need to be submitted separately.

Event type and audience are required. You can choose multiple types and audiences. Users will be able to sort calendar events based these types and audiences. Select the categories that are most appropriate for your event. Please, do not select all event types.

Providing a cost will allow users to plan before arriving at the event. If your event is free, leave it blank.

The web link will allow you to direct the user to more information. This may link to a page about the event, a department or college page, or to the tickets page.

Provide concise information about your event. Keep in mind that the details of your event may seem obvious to you, but are not always obvious to others.

You will be able to review your information and make changes.
