Please see the Advertising Guidelines in the Student Handbook for all policies related to advertising on campus.
Promote your event using an easel in Dahl Centennial Union. Details and an online reservation form are found here.
Post your announcement on one of the many Facebook pages for the Luther community. Go to www.luther.edu/socialmedia/facebook/ for a listing of Facebook pages and groups at Luther College.
The Bulletin is published for the Luther Community by the Campus Programming Office every Tuesday and Friday when classes are in session.
Get a date for your event on Luther's calendar by submitting the Academic Year Campus Event Request Form, contacting Susan Peterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) extension #1291, if you have questions. Exploring the Calendar of Events will also assist you in selecting potential dates.
It is possible to have event information placed on various digital signs on campus. The best way to provide information is to produce a JPG file containing what you'd like displayed and email it with an explanation of your request. We recommend the following digital signs:
Many departments maintain blogs communicate events happening related to their specific area. If you provide an announcement it is quite likely they will post it. Here are some known blogs in different departments and offices on campus:
Department heads are often willing to send email announcements to all majors and minors for relevant events. Craft a draft message for them and it has an even better possibility of being sent.
Some professors would be willing to let you make an announcement prior to class starting. You can either ask professors teaching the classes you're taking for permission to do this or ask professors teaching a course related to your events subject.
Advertisement must be approved (stamped) by the Student Activities Office and should be given to the Mail Center a couple of business days before they are to be sent. The advertisement can't be smaller than 3.5 x 5. 2400 pieces are needed to cover all SPO boxes.
Reservations to advertise using the napkin holders in the Caf should be made as far in advance as possible. They are typically reserved for a one week period starting on a Sunday. To see when advertising is available see this calendar. To make your reservation call Dining Services at 563-387-1030.
Reservations to advertise using the stall announcement boards in the Dahl Centennial Union bathrooms should be made at least 2 weeks in advance. They may be reserved for a one week period starting on a Monday. 14 portrait style posters (8x11) must be turned in to the Student Activities office the Friday morning of the week prior to the reservation. To make a reservation, fill out the form.
Student organizations can print posters on the plotter printer in the Document Center. The cost is $3/sq foot for regular paper and $4/sq foot for tyvek paper (won't rip). You can calculate your poster cost by multiplying the poster length and width, dividing by 144 then multiplying by $3 or $4, depending on the paper type. Example: a 36in x 42in poster on regular paper would cost $31.50 = ((36x42)/144)*$3
A few friendly reminders for posters or fliers on campus:
If you have questions please ask someone in the Student Activities Office or in the Residence Life Office.
