This Compass series shines a spotlight on unique and high-profile events and important deadlines taken from OHIO's official online Calendar of University Events. Visit to log in with your OHIO ID and add your organization or department's events to the CUE. Feeling lost? Visit or email for help.


Anyone with an active OHIO ID can add events to the CUE, but remember to add "nontraditional" events! We want the big events but adding items like retirement receptions, application deadlines and contests helps keep the entire University community informed. And students, adding meetings and sign-up periods can help you reach new people who may not know about your organization!
