Digital Event Sign

Usage Guidelines

Southern’s Digital Event Sign is located on the lawn across from Fleming Plaza and is managed by Marketing and University Relations. Requests to have university event content appear on the sign should be made within at least two weeks of the event (more to accommodate longer advertising time).

  • No more than 3-5 different events will rotate at one time.
  • Priority will be given to events focused on the general public (e.g. Wellness Summit, gallery or exhibit openings, lectures open to public, etc.) rather than events focused toward students and/or employees (e.g. Vespers, SA parties and banquets, Studio 4109, BRIDGE Luncheon, etc.).
  • A point system will be utilized on our website which will help MUR with prioritizing requests. Factors such as the intended audience; venue reserved; type of message; amount of attendees expected will be considered in the prioritization.
  • Minimum and maximum amount of time for message to be on display will be at the discretion of Marketing and University Relations and determined based on the number of points received for the request; other types of messages vying for space; and amount of time given to prepare content for display.
  • Default message when event content may be minimal (e.g. weekends, summer, and holidays) will be to display a general “welcome to campus” or “thank you for visiting campus” message.
  • What will not be permitted:  
    • Personal announcements (e.g. “____, will you marry me?” “Happy Birthday to _____” etc.)
    • Announcements that are not event-related (e.g. Intramural sign up; add or drop deadlines; tuition freedom day; academic programs; student orientations; fund drives; etc.). During seasonal or holiday periods when event content availability may be low, an exception may be made for promoting ongoing campus areas that are open to the public (such as the archaeology museum, origins exhibit, campus trails, wellness center, or library).
    • Photos, illustrations, cartoons, and movies unless they are very simple, clean, high quality, and are determined by Marketing and University Relations to not interfere with the readability of any messages.
