Neag Student News (Undergrad & Grad)

Overview

In order to reduce the amount of email students have to read through, the Neag School of Education has consolidated individual emails into a single digest sent once daily at 9:00 a.m. to students. The new student daily digest, titled “Neag Student News” will be powered by the same software developed by UITS to run the UConn Daily Digest sent each day at 11 a.m. If there are no announcements scheduled for a particular day’s daily digest, no email will be broadcast.

Daily Digest Rules

There are two rules in place for the daily digest:

  • Announcements must be submitted two business days in advance
    ex: an announcement you would like broadcast on a Wednesday must be submitted on a Monday
  • Announcements can be repeated a maximum of 3 times

Submission Process

Anyone with a NetID can submit to the Neag Student News by visiting the Soapbox site (Soapbox is the software that powers the Daily Digest)

  1. Go to the Soapbox site at: soapbox.uconn.edu
  2. Click the blue “Submit Announcement” button
  3. Sign in with your NetID & password
  4. Select “Neag Student News” as your publication
  5. Choose an upcoming publication date
  6. Fill in the headline, announcement details or a link to an external announcement, and your contact information
