NOTE: If your event is sponsored/cosponsored by a registered student organization, see pages 47-53 of the Student Organization Handbook. All events must be registered with the Office of Student Development, and publicity must be approved.
Large format posters (11 x 17 inches and larger—36 inches wide maximum) can be printed through the Office of Student Development at no charge for any registered student organization. Poster quantity is limited to 8 to 12 posters per event depending upon what poster space your organization has reserved. Printing can take up to 7 working days depending upon the current workload. If you are interested in having OSD print posters for you, please submit a print request.
Other posters or flyers can be printed through any of the Marquette University approved print vendors. For a list of the vendors, contact Jennifer Reid. NOTE: We currently do printing only for registered student organizations. Students who wish to have posters printed for class projects/conferences or departments outside the Division of Student Affairs who need publicity should have posters printed at one of the University approved vendors.
All posters need to be stamped by the Office of Student Development before they go up around campus (including residence halls). All events being publicized must be registered with the Office of Student Development before publicity will be approved. It generally takes no longer than 24 hours for publicity to be approved.
This update is sent to approximately 750 leaders of student organizations via an e-mail distribution list. Contact our office if you wish to include a submission to the email about your event.
The Tribune charges for actual advertisements, but sometimes a well-written press release (see p.51, "Writing a Press Release", in this handbook) with a good amount of advanced warning will encourage one of the reporters to cover your event. Though you pay for advertising, having them write an article is FREE! Also, consider writing a Viewpoints letter to get published a couple days in advance of your event.

The AMU Event Management Office (AMU 245) reserves banner space in the main stairwell. Stop in the office or give them a call at 288-7202. They do request that banners be professionally done, but that doesn’t mean they have to be expensive.
