  3. Fant-Ewing Display Board—The Fant-Ewing Display Board is a great way for ULM to get the message out about upcoming events and a wonderful way to keep everyone informed. The information on the board is created and posted by staff members in the Office of Public Information. Information for the board will be taken primarily from the ULM web calendar http://calendar.ulm.edu so please be sure your university related events are there. Also, be sure you have as much information as possible posted to the calendar in order for everyone to get a good idea of what your event is about, how much it costs, what time it starts, where it is, etc. The space for creating messages on the board is limited, so please keep that in mind when viewing it. Also, we hope to keep information updated on a weekly basis and we will post as space allows. We will post sporting events, student driven events, and important dates for University openings and closings. Please let us know if you have any comments at ksutton@ulm.edu.
