The College of Business has an integrated web-based calendar that provides a mechanism for capturing and sharing all college-related events.
The calendar is also integrated with other calendars at NIU so that in addition to viewing college events, the NIU academic calendar, NIU events calendar, etc. can also be viewed.
To view a calendar select from the following calendar listing:
You can change the view of the calendar from just displaying a single week to viewing a day, two weeks, a month, or the entire year. When you view a year, all the details of the events are lost and to see the events on a day you will need to first click on the date. Typically, the best view to select is either the "2-week" or "Month" view. These different views appear as tabs on the top left side of the displayed calendar.
To navigate to different months, select the anchor date around which you would like to view information using the pull-down choices on the upper middle section of the page and click "Go." Click the arrows next to the date to navigate to times before and after the selected time period.
To have an event added to a COB calendar, you must first log in to the system (by clicking the "Login" button on the top right of the screen). Once logged in, simply click the "Add Event" button located near the top right of any calendar page. Once you do this, a form will be displayed where you minimally should provide: 1) event title; 2) event date & time; 3) desired calendar on which it would appear; and 4) contact person and contact email. Once you have entered as much information as possible, click "Add" button. Your event information will then be formatted by Tech Resources and posted to the calendar.
Once you are viewing a calendar, you can also easily modify what calendars you would like to view. Any combination of calendars may be collectively viewed, including non-COB calendars such as "Academics" calendar which includes information on university deadlines, open houses, etc. To identify the calendar(s) you want to view, select as many different categories as you like by checking the boxes next to the desired category. To maximize the subcategories list, click the "+" next to "View subcategories." Here you can choose more specific calendar views (Business under "Colleges"). When you have selected all the calendars you wish, click the "View Selected Calendar(s)" button at the top of the page.
