Student Org Resources

How it works

The Promotions Office is a design and print resource for the campus community. You aren't required to utilize our services for your event, but you're absolutely welcome to! We have a team of student designers who can design promotional materials (posters, banners, etc.) from scratch, or you can send us files to print.

We recommend that Student Orgs order Packages because they include design time— only one simple price to pay!

Please plan ahead!

We require 5 business days (1 week) for print jobs and 10 days (2 weeks) for design + print. It's important to plan ahead and make sure you give us enough time to complete your project.

At the very least, you should submit a Funding Request 4-6 weeks before your event, and submit a Service Request 3-4 weeks before your event. It's never too early to start promoting!

Payment Options

We work closely with Student Life to help you cover the cost of your event. If you submit a Funding Request and attend a Funding Board meeting, you can receive funding to have the promotions for your event covered by the Student Life Fund. If you don't receive funding, you're welcome to pay with check or credit card.

We accept: Credit cards (online), Checks (mail it or drop it off), and funding from the Student Life Fund (we'll send the bill to the Office of Student Life).

Student Org FOAPs accepted for these items.

Must be for specific events— not generic ("Join our club").

Note About Campus Life Night:

If you are looking for Campus Life Night materials, please note that we are not currently offering design time due to limited staffing availability. If you submit your own designs before Aug. 16, we will still be able to get items printed before Campus Life Night on Aug. 28. Design time will be available for other projects once the semester has started. 

Free Laker Hub Slides for RSOs

Laker Hub slides are now free for Registered Student Organizations (RSOs)! Each RSO is permitted to have one Laker Hub slide up at a time (4 weeks max per slide). Please make sure you are following all Laker Hub slide design standards before you submit your service request and attach your file. If you’d like, we can design slides for you, but your organization will be charged for design time.
