The College has plasma television screens located throughout the Lincroft campus and at our regional locations. We will create a slide for your event, service or other promotion. Please use the form to submit information about your event, along with any pictures or artwork you may have. The slideshow changes every other week (less frequently in summer months).
Submissions: Promotion Request Form
The two LED signs at the entrances to Brookdale are designed to advertise events held on the Lincroft campus. They are also used to advertise school closings or emergencies. Type space is limited to 3 -5 lines of text with no more than 18 characters per line (maybe less depending on the size of the font), and should state the name of the event, the campus location, and the time and date. Events will generally appear (depending on space considerations) 2 weeks before the scheduled event date. This information changes daily, Monday-Friday.

Broadcast Emergency Messages
Broadcast emergency emails are used only when necessary. They are meant to call attention to something of immediate importance to the entire College community. Examples of items suitable for broadcast are: a power outage, a road closing, a critical deadline, etc. Broadcast messages are not used to announce events. Please keep in mind that failure to plan for the sufficient publicity of an event does not make it eligible for broadcast.
