We know that advertising for your organization can be a major undertaking. Please see the list below for resources available

Advertising in Olmsted

Banners in the Breezeway
Banner display space is available in the breezeway of lower Olmsted. Stop by the Student Life Center to reserve your space and make your banner!

Posting Flyers & Posters
Flyers can be hung up in designated areas in Olmsted and Hubbell. All flyers must be approved through the Student Life Center before being posted. Drop your flyers off and we approve and hang them!

Did you know you can print posters on campus? Follow the below instructions to do so!

Printing Posters on Campus

The default size is 11x17. If you want something different please ask. If Campus Mail Operations (CMO) cannot do it, you can use an off-campus printer.

  • Email your high quality PDF (sized to 11x17) to campusmailoperations@drake.edu; cc hafner@drake.edu; include the number of posters you want & your student org name
  • Sandy will check your budget and reply all that the order is approved (as long as you have money)
  • CMO will respond with the final cost
  • You can expect your posters later that day or the next – posters can be picked up in SLC

Tabling in the Breezeway
Groups can promote their events and organizations at designated tables in Olmsted and Hubbell. To reserve a table, please use Virtual EMS. *Note: only designated individuals (organization president and VEMS Coordinator) can access the system. If you have questions please contact student.life@drake.edu

A-Frame Boards (Sandwich Boards)
A-Frame boards can give your event or group more visibility in high traffic areas inside and outside of Olmsted. Boards can be reserved online or through the Student Life Center. All boards are available to student groups on a first-come, first-served basis.
