There's so much going on at The University of Scranton. How can you find out about it all?  

The answer is here. Royal News. 

Royal News, the official University of Scranton news site, features stories, blogs, publications, newsletters and announcements from around campus. Stories are organized by section so you can find the most up-to-date news that's relevant to you.

News is updated on the Royal News website on a daily basis, so check back often to find out what's happening on and around campus, as well as with the alumni community. You'll also get a glimpse at our social media channels.

Published by the office of External Affairs and distributed via email on Wednesdays, the Royal News e-newsletter is sent to all students, faculty and staff, as well as interested parents. On the first Wednesday of the month, the newsletter includes alumni news, and is distributed to alumni who opt-in.

How do I submit an announcement?

If you're a member of a department or organization on campus, you can submit an announcement by sending an email to royalnews@scranton.edu or by clicking the Royal News button when submitting an announcement in the portal.

How do I submit an event?

You can submit your campus event here and it will appear on the University calendar.

What's the difference between a story and an announcement? 

Good question! A story has a narrative and usually is about an event or updates us about something that has already occurred. An announcement is to get the word out about a future event but requires more information than what would be on the calendar.
