If you are a Student, Faculty, or Staff member, and would like to have a list created for the purpose of an official campus club or organization, please contact helpdesk@washcoll.edu with a detailed reason for needing the list. Your request will be sent to an administrator, who will judge whether or not you meet the criteria needed for us to create a list for you. We will then contact you via phone or email. Our normal business hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.

All campus clubs and organizations may set up a membership list for their communications. A list administrator for each club will maintain a secure list of users and screen any junk mail.

For those who want to receive communications of general campus interest, we have created lists providing a marketplace for items for sale and a lost and found board. Anyone on campus can post to these lists.

Other specific interest groups, such as academic departments, sports teams, honor societies, or even cooking aficionados and book clubs, may also use subscribed lists for targeted communications. To subscribe to the unofficial lists, visit: http://list.washcoll.edu. For more information about lists, visit the Listserv Procedure page.
