Editorial calendar

As the University's official news outlet, Nevada Today covers the latest campus news. We also like to both collect past coverage and produce new, in-depth pieces on monthly themes and observances. This might include highlighting members of the Pack, research, events and a myriad other things.

The list of observances below is by no means exhaustive, but it does give an idea of basic content themes that will be present throughout the year. By the same token, not every observance will have corresponding content every year. Primary focus topics for a given month are in bold.

When submitting a story, keep this calendar in mind.
