Suspended during Covid: Poster Run
Each week our Poster Runner distributes posters across campus. The Poster Run is an excellent way to inform students about your upcoming event. Please visit the Poster Run page for more information or to submit a request.
Flyers are another great way to promote your upcoming event. We offer printing of flyers on letter paper; however, the flyers need to be cut by your team. Printing through WUSA is a more affordable way to promote your next event.
