Announcements will be displayed in order of priority:
- Emergency information
- Admissions announcements
- Conferences and public meetings
- Athletic events and theater or music performances
The following campus-wide events will take priority:
- Priority registration
- Open house
To ensure your announcement's place in the queue, requests should be submitted at least two weeks in advance. To submit a request, please complete a Digital Sign Posting Request form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that the office of Marketing & Communications reserves the right to edit submitted material, determine what is appropriate for posting, and choose when a posting will appear in the announcement rotation.
Finally, please keep our sign beautiful! Posters, flyers, or notices of any kind may not be affixed to the digital sign frame.
