What is an RSS Feed?

RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication, in other words, it is a method used for online media to publish frequently updated areas of their website. In most cases, RSS feeds are used for blogs, news websites, web stores, etc.

SMSU Today generates an RSS Feed of its latest SMSU Info articles. We do this to help you stay current with campus happenings and also to help you replace the SMSU Info emails.
