How do I add the Bucknell Religious Holidays to my Bucknell calendar?

To help you be aware of important religious holidays when scheduling events, our friends in Religious and Spiritual Life have created a special calendar that you can add to your Bmail calendar. Once you have that calendar in your list of calendars, you will be able to see important religious holidays right on your Bmail calendar, which will help you to schedule events that don't conflict with major religious holidays.

There are two different ways to add the calendar to your account.  The most simple way to add the calendar is to click on the share link, as we describe here:

  1. Click on the following link, which should open your Calendar in a a new window or tab:
  2. Google will ask you to confirm that you want to add that calendar to your account.  Click on the "Add" button to accept the calendar:

You will then see "Bucknell Religious Holidays" in your list of "Other calendars."  You can skip down to Step 6 in our alternative method below to learn how to change the color of events for that calendar, to make them easier to see.

  1. Go to your Bmail calendar, and scroll down on the left-hand side until you find the "Other calendars" section.  Click on the + next to "Other calendars" to begin the process of adding a new calendar to your account:
