The localist web part pulls in upcoming events from events.depaul.edu.
It works best on home pages or in the main content area of a regular page.
When creating the widget code, it is best to set the number of events to show to a low number, especially if it is going on a home page -- so that it looks balanced with the other content on the page.
Three to four events is probably best for a home page. Four to six would be best for a main content area.
