Middlebury

Drupal Event

The Drupal Event content type can be used to list information about upcoming events. It is formatted to look similar to a list of News stories when presented in a list. This feature was originally only available on the Sustainability section of the site, but can now be used anywhere on the main Middlebury instance of Drupal.
