Submission Criteria

In order for your event to qualify for inclusion in the BU Backyard, please ensure that the following criteria are met:

  • Each event must offer a discount or other benefit that recognizes their status as alumni.
  • Each event registration must offer a selection for alumni to identify their affiliation as alumni.
  • At the event, your event manager must be prepared to greet alumni with a recognition that they are alumni.

Production Timeline: The BU Backyard Newsletter is mailed on the last Tuesday of every month. Events must be submitted by the end of the day on the Thursday prior to that Tuesday.
