Located on the MyASU homepage, every student has a college box with announcements and stories from within their college and ASU. It is noteworthy that while all student will have a college box, each student’s box is unique based on their academic track. For example, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will post stories that will only appear only within their students’ college box.
Faculty Directors can strategically post ads and highlights or their upcoming programs within target students’ college boxes by following the steps below:
The text that you create for students’ college boxes should be short, captivating, and tell them what they need to know.
The text should also include links for students to find more information – it is recommended that you provide a link to your program’s online brochure. Other links that you may want to include as appropriate are other electronic or social media pages for your program. Provide the links in the format shown below in the example of an ad posted by the ASU Study Abroad Office:

Communications Specialists within colleges or departments are responsible for updating students’ MyASU college boxes. You will need to contact the Communications Specialist within the specific college or department that you are trying to market to and provide them with the following information:
- Your name;
- Program name;
- Overview of program;
- Why students in their college or department will be interested in your program; and
- The text (with links) and image from steps 1 and 2.
To find the name(s) and contact information for Communication Specialists, visit the college or department staff listings. Note: their staff title may not be Communications Wpecialists, but it will be similar.
