Notices and posters must clearly state the organization sponsoring an event and other pertinent information including the date, time, place, contact name, phone number and admission charge. No anonymous posters will be allowed.
Notices and posters in the residence halls must be approved by the Area Director responsible for that building. Notices or posters should be posted only on bulletin boards in the administration or classroom buildings. Tape, staples or tacks may not be used to fasten notices to doors, moldings, woodwork, painted walls or windows.
Posters announcing an approved College or student group sponsored event will be approved provided the criteria set forth in this policy are met.
All posters must be sponsored by a recognized College office or student group, whose name shall appear prominently on the poster.
Poster approval does not imply College endorsement. Student Club Posters will be stamped for approval by the Campus Life and Leadership Office.
Posters will not be approved if any of the following apply:
They assert or imply official College approval of any viewpoints expressed.
They offend community standards of good taste.
They contain language or symbols abusive or demeaning of specific social groups.
They deny respect for the dignity of individuals.
They appear libelous
They encourage sale or use of alcohol or promote establishments selling alcohol.
They promote or facilitate any aspect of substance abuse.
They encourage or seek to incite specific illegal acts.
They promote goods or services sold for personal profit
They are from persons or companies who are not a recognized office or student group.
They promote non-campus-related activities of commercial sponsors.
Posters promoting activities and events of other non-profit institutions and organizations may be approved in limited numbers provided they do not violate the other criteria listed here.
Posters may be hung on the first floor of the campus center. Anything hung on the outside of buildings must be approved by the physical plant director. Approval of posters and authorization to post notices on bulletin boards should be obtained from the Office of Campus Life and Leadership Programs. Postings may be brought to the Office of Campus Life and Leadership Programs and, upon approval, the Office of Campus Life and Leadership Programs will coordinate the hanging of the posters.
Posters may be placed in designated areas only and never on painted surfaces, walls, glass windows or doors. Each building has special requirements, so please note the following. If you have any questions about a particular building, please ask in the Campus Life and Leadership Office. The tape you use may damage the wall surface; masking tape works better than cellophane tape on some surfaces and vice versa. Please check the surface area before you use any adherent. Dual stick tape should never be used.
No off-campus group or organization is permitted to post advertising on the campus without prior approval from the Office of Campus Life and Leadership. This permission will be limited to two pieces of material.
All unauthorized, outdated or improperly affixed notices and posters will be removed, and the sponsoring organizations will be subject to penalty or fines. Persons posting notices and posters are responsible for their removal when they are outdated.

Non-Business Items/Community Announcements:
The Office of Communications will post non-business items. Communications reserves the right to determine what non-business items will be posted. Postings may be edited due to space constraints. Items such as prayer requests must go through Campus Ministry for forwarding to The Dolphin Digest.
Official notices from administrative departments are posted on the bulletin board adjacent to the registrar’s office. This board is reserved for this purpose and may not be used by organizations for posters or other purposes.
Students may not leaflet, or cause or seek to permit leafleting by any third party, on any part of the Le Moyne College campus, including the parking lots, without the permission of the associate provost for student development.
Publicity for College Activities
The Office of Communications issues all information, news releases and advertisements pertaining to the College, and arranges for media coverage of all College events. As members of the media prefer to work with one central information source, it is important that contact with news outlets be made only through this office.
The office also designs College advertisements and produces and edits publications, including posters and programs, for internal and external purposes. It maintains the College’s online events calendar on the Echo homepage and sends the daily campus e-newsletter, The Dolphin Digest.
To promote campus events, visit echo.lemoyne.edu at least three weeks prior to the event and click on "Submit your event to the College calendar." You will need to provide the following information:
• What (brief description of event)
• Where (location, building, room number)
• When (day, date, time)
• Who (name of speaker)
• Audience (internal: for Le Moyne community; external: for public)

In the event of a cancellation, please notify a staff member in the Office of Communications immediately at 445-4555. He or she will contact all media who may have planned to attend your event.
