Hometown Newspaper Releases
Following Commencement, the Office of Marketing will send out news releases announcing each student’s accomplishment of graduating from the University of Mount Union. The news releases will be sent via readMedia, a system that sends releases quickly and efficiently to students’ newspapers based on their geographic location (zip code).
Students will be copied via email (Mount Union email address) on this news release. And, he or she can easily share it on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Digg and LinkedIn.
At the beginning of each fall semester, incoming freshmen are asked if they would like information to be released to the media. We keep this information on file; therefore, if you chose at that time to not have your information released, we will still not send information to your area newspapers. If you would like check on your release status or make any changes to your file, please contact the Office of Marketing at (330) 823-6063.
Please note that the Office of Marketing will send out a hometown news releases for each student (unless the student has chosen to decline this publicity effort), but that does not guarantee that the newspapers will print the releases. All material is printed at the discretion of the newspapers.
