Want to promote an event?

It’s simple. Just login using your Atlas username and password, submit a short web form, and we will handle the rest!

  • Visit valenciacollege.edu/events
  • Login to the Valencia Events calendar with your Atlas username and password.
  • Click the yellow button: Submit an Event.
  • Fill out the web form with as much detail as you can provide.
  • Select all event types that apply to the event.
  • Remember to hit “Submit” at the bottom of the page.

NOTE: Events are location-specific.

If your event is reoccurring at the same location (building/room), you can submit a single event and add reoccurring dates to the same event. The event will appear in the calendar for each date entered. If you have an event that happens at multiple locations on the same or different dates, you will need to create a separate event entry for each location (building/room).
