Chalking Policy: 

Student organizations may use chalk as a means of publicity, but, chalking is limited to only sidewalks.

Guidelines:

  • Chalk is not allowed on the side of buildings. Student organizations will be charged a cleaning fee in this situations, and will risk losing other SAE privileges.
  • Student organizations may be asked to clean up their chalk if large institutional events are taking place.

Chalk message cannot include any material that is illegal or in violation of University policies, including alcohol- and drug-related content.

Flyer Policy:

SAE manages a number of bulletin boards on campus – all flyers must be brought to the office to be approved before being posted.

Guidelines:

  • All materials must include a phone number, and the first name of the contact person.
  • Flyer cannot include any material that is illegal or in violation of University policies, including alcohol- and drug-related content.
  • Publicity materials may only be displayed on public bulletin boards, and not on windows, doors or other surfaces for safety/facility reasons.
