  • Banners must promote university events, events sponsored by student government, or events sponsored by a Registered Student Organization.
  • Only one banner will be accepted per event.
  • Banners will be placed for a maximum of two weeks.
  • Banners are put up on a first come, first served basis.
  • Banner location can be requested but is not guaranteed.
