Student Group Communication
It is important to diversify your communication methods when encouraging new members to join your group and when spreading the word about your events and activities.
Web-based accounts such as Yahoo! Gmail: These types of
email accounts are often the most preferred because of their
flexibility and familiarity; it is great to continue them from
year-to-year, but remember that inactive accounts get shut down
quickly and you can lose your information
Memorial Email Accounts: Ratified clubs and societies can
get a student-group email account from Computing and
Communications. All that is required is a sheet signed by the
Executive Director of Student Life from MUNSU validating the
existence of your group. From there, proceed to the Henrietta
Harvey building and set up the email account.
Recognized groups can also operate list-serves. Essentially, these are bulk-mailing systems whereby addresses are added into a system and an email can be sent via the administrator to all of the addresses within. It beats copying and pasting all of the addresses each time, reduces the "cc" field and maintains the privacy of individual members information.
If you need help with your listserve, Computing and Communications can assist, as well as staff at Answers, UC-3005 (ask for Meghan or Lauren) and MUNSU.
