Henderson Campus Center Posting Policies

All posted materials must be in good taste and respectful of the Allegheny College Statement of Community published annually in The Compass. Failure to do so could result in the removal of the posted material and/or suspension of posting privileges.

Posting in the Campus Center is reserved for campus events or those sponsored by and with the Allegheny Community. Outside vendors are only permitted to advertise on the “I Heart Meadville” display rails located in the entryways to the Campus Center lobby and balcony.

Materials may not be taped or tacked on walls, doors, bathroom stalls, or windows.

Promotional material should not make reference to alcoholic beverages, drinking contest, illicit drugs or sexual content.

Banners:

Banners must contain the following information: Name of sponsoring organization with a brief description if not recognizable, the date, time and location of the event as well as contact information for the organization or the responsible member (this may be handwritten on the back of the banner). Banners not adhering to this policy will be removed by Student Leadership & Involvement. The organization’s president will be notified and given one week to update the banner. Banners not updated within a week will be discarded.

To preserve the building and its materials, publicity hung in the main lobby or second floor must be hung with plastic clips. If not found on balconies, these clips can be obtained from Student Leadership & Involvement. Banners should be removed when events are completed.

Due to environmental and safety concerns, banners hung in the Campus Center Lobby can have a maximum vertical length of four feet and a maximum horizontal length of six feet. Banners up to seven feet in vertical length may be hung from the third floor balcony of the Campus Center. If there is question or concern, please see a Student Leadership & Involvement staff member.

Fliers/Posters:

Fliers must contain the following information: Name of sponsoring organization with a brief description if not recognizable, the date, time and location of the event as well as contact information for the organization or the responsible member. Fliers not adhering to this policy will be removed by Student Leadership & Involvement. When possible the organization will be contacted noting the specific posting violation.

Posted materials must be contained to posting bars throughout the building. Damage done by improperly posted materials on surfaces will be billed to student organizations.

Fliers should not overlap or conceal other items, posting is on a first come, first serve basis, we ask that members in the community post publicity no more than 7 – 10 days prior to the event and limit publicity to one flier per display rail (or set of two) out of respect for other members of the community.

Posters requiring easels or pole stands that are event driven with a college-wide impact may be displayed in the front of the lobby two business days prior to the event. Posters advertising college-wide ticket sales may be displayed in the front of the lobby five days prior to the event. Contact Student Leadership & Involvement for display coordination.

Other Forms of Publicity:

Chalking is permitted on sidewalks exposed to the elements. Chalking is not allowed on walls, doors or building exteriors. Please remove following events if rain or snow has not.

Table tents: may be posted a week prior to an event. No more than two tents may be on a table at a time.

Display cases are available to promote organizations or upcoming events. Third floor display cases are available for student organizations. Reserve through: wufoo form on SLI website.
