Adding events is super simple. It’s also super important! Our events calendar is our place to showcase the many things that are happening in and around Sweet Briar College – and we rely on you to add your events to the calendar so that we can promote them on campus and to the public properly.

Adding an event is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

We can show you how to add an event if you need help. Generally events fall into two categories: In-Person events (events with space reservations), or Virtual Events (events without space reservations). Select the tutorial below that is best for you, and we’ll teach you how in under 2 minutes!


If you have any questions, review our Event Planning FAQ, or just send an email to communications@sbc.edu or call 434-381-6262 and we’ll be glad to help!

Promote Your Event

Promoting an event well is an important factor in determining the success of an event, whether it is an in-person or virtual event. The Communications team can help you promote your event online and with print-materials, depending on your need. In order for an event to be promoted, it must first be planned in Libcal. Once an event plan is configured in Libcal, Communications will begin the event promotion process with you.

Is your event planned in Libcal?

Your Event Is In Libcal

Thanks so much for planning and submitting your event through Libcal. As you know, the Libcal form asks questions about how your event should be promoted. Communications has received that submission and will be contacting you directly about event promotion. If you have any other needs or questions, please contact communications at communications@sbc.edu. Thanks!

You’re done!

Plan Your Event In Libcal

The first step in coordinating a successful event at Sweet Briar College is planning it through Libcal, our room/space management, scheduling, and calendar tool. Libcal allows you to reserve your space (if needed) and alert the appropriate people that an event needs to be promoted. You’ll then be contacted as needed to help you promote your event.
