What is the Campus Wide Calendar?

The Campus Wide Calendar is where the college lists all important dates.  Faculty and Staff must keep an accurate and up-to-date calendar in Outlook.  This simplifies the process of setting up meetings. 

Viewing the Campus Wide Calendar

To view the Campus Wide Calendar, log-in to your MyVolState account, and click the tab Master Calendar. There you will be able to see the Campus Wide Calendar by month, table or list.  For optimal use, it is recommended using Internet Explorer when subscribing to the calendar.

The left hand side will list the Event Types. There, you will be able to select which parts of the Calendar you most want to see. If you only want to see certain Event types (Academic, for example) make sure the only calendar selected under Event Type is Academic before you Subscribe to it in your VSCC Personal Outlook.

Subscribing to the Campus Wide Calendar

In the top, right-hand corner of the calendar, you’ll see a Subscribe button (this may appear on the right-hand side.) The subscribe button allows you to import the Calendar to your VSCC Personal Outlook account so you can have everything on one calendar.

Once you click Yes, the Campus Wide Calendar should appear as a separate calendar in your Outlook. From there, you can add it as an overlay over your own Calendar or use it as a second calendar and view them side-by-side. You can also uncheck the Calendar on the left-hand side to remove it from your Calendars at any time.
