How to get a CSER Announcement Posted

1. Write out your announcement as though you were DIRECTLY ADDRESSING THE STUDENTS. 

Include the following:

b) Basic expectations* of the students (days, times, qualifications, etc.)
c) Contact information (phone #s, e-mails, website links - but only the e-mail or website can be made active; normally we make the e-mail an active link)

*NOTE: You must be able to provide a minimum of 20 hours of service time for each student who enrolls.  If you need them for more, you must communicate this up front. (You do not have to include this in the announcement, but please be aware of this policy).
