Press Releases

What is a senior press release?

Students and their families often wish to share academic milestones, including commencement, with their hometown communities through announcements in local newspapers. Since most community newspapers will publish brief news articles about area residents, the Office of Communications has prepared press release templates for both traditional graduating seniors and Frances Perkins Scholars.

To complete a press release, simply fill in the blanks of the appropriate form and send it to the publication(s) of your choice. If you have questions, contact the Office of Communications at 413-538-2899.
