As part of an initiative aimed at reducing the number of campus-wide emails, the Department of University Marketing and Communications has developed Torero Weekly, which aggregates announcements and events aimed at the entire campus community (faculty, students and administration/staff) into a communication disseminated campus wide each Monday during the academic year.

To learn more about Torero Weekly or to submit an event, please review the Torero Weekly web page on the University Marketing and Communications website.

*By submitting a "Student Photo of the Week," you agree to our terms.
