Whereas There are many groups, departments, and over 250 student organizations that post thousands of flyers and announcements every semester on campus; and
Whereas Posting restrictions allow only limited designated posting sites in the busiest, most visible building on campus, the University Center; and
Whereas The current size of these boards restrict the number of flyers that can be displayed and the boards become overcrowded and chaotic; and
Whereas The flyers are easily overlooked by the target audience or are torn down to make room for a new flyer.
Be It Further Resolved That That the current posting boards located in the University Center be replaced with larger boards that extend from the ceiling to the floor (like those found in Ransom Hall); and
Be It Further Resolved That That additional boards be added on the main floor of the University Center across from the payphones located near the Apollo Caf'.
