Further Your Reach with Event Tags

As you are creating your events make sure to use all of the tools CONNECT has to offer in reaching as many people as possible.

One of the features that can help your event reach more students is the use of "event tags" you can assign to your event to help people search for your event. Some of the tags include "FREE", "social", "educational" and many more!

Make sure to add tags during the first step of creating your event in CONNECT (see below).
