Helpful Hints for Composing Messages

  • Be sure to provide all relevant information, including:
    • Event title, description, date, start time, end time, location, etc.
    • Admission charge, if any
    • Contact person and/or contact information
    • Requested start and end date for announcement
  • Use of pictures and images are strongly encouraged. Those who post to CUBBS are welcome and strongly encouraged to use the pre-made templates available on the CUBBS web site for messages.
  • Be brief and to the point as your message has a better chance of being read if the content of the message is quickly and efficiently displayed – each slide only displays for 20 seconds at a time.
  • When using photos, be sure the photos are high-resolution (1024 x 768, with 72 pixels per inch) jpegs.
  • General questions about CUBBS including postings deadlines and support should be forward to the ITS Help Desk at or by calling 508-793-7745.
