How much does it cost?

Our Poster Run has 12 spots each week. Each spot is reserved for a poster that is 11X17 inches or smaller at a cost of $25.00 per week. If the poster is larger than 11×17 inches you must reserve two spaces for a total of $50.00, if space permits. Posters larger than 17×22 inches will not be accepted. We accept cash, checks, card, department accounts and internal orders. If paying by card, the Campus Information Manager will send you a link -via email- to complete payment. Checks must be payable to ‘Campus Information’ and IOs must be payable to ‘Campus Activities.’ I am part of a student organization, do I get a discount for poster run?
We do offer a $10.00 discount per run for student organizations registered with SLiCE, if they are entirely made of students. CSU departments registered through SLiCE as a student organization, will not benefit from this discount. Student organizations are required to pay through the SLiCE office with their SOFA account.

How often can I use the Poster Run?

There are no restrictions on the number of times an organization may reserve a Poster Run spot during a semester. However, an organization may reserve only two spots per week. Also, organizations can only reserve a maximum of two consecutive weeks per poster because of the high demand for spot reservations. You or your department may not reserve a Poster Run if there are any outstanding invoices.

What information should my posters include?
The name of the CSU organization or department MUST be PRINTED on each poster. We will not accept handwritten additions of a sponsoring organization’s or department’s name. Posters should include the date, time, location, and price of the event, if and where applicable. Due to the limited space, we will no longer be accepting posters in landscape orientation. POSTERS MUST BE IN PORTRAIT ORIENTATION!!

How long will the posters stay up?
The reservation fee reserves your poster spot for a minimum of one week and maximum of two consecutive weeks, as long as space is available. Out-dated posters, or posters not registered through the Poster Run will be removed.

When do I drop the posters off?
You can drop off posters any time during the week previous to your reservation. Posters must be dropped off at the Campus Information desk in the Lory Student Center no later than noon on the Thursday before the week you reserved the spot. The posters will be hung between noon on Friday and noon on Monday. If we do not receive the posters on time, we cannot guarantee that they will be displayed. No refunds will be given.
How many posters should I bring?
25 posters.

How far in advance can I make cancellations?
If you choose not to go forward with your poster run reservation, you must cancel 48 hours prior to the due date (Thursdays at noon). If you do not make the cancellation this far in advance, you will still be required to pay the reservation fee.
