CU departments: Put your message on UMC digital signs

Do you have programs, services, courses, events or messages that you want or need to promote to get more attention? Put your message on the UMC digital signs!

Create your own eye-catching slides, animations, PowerPoint or videos that cycle on three different UMC digital signs in front of hundreds of students and UMC visitors. New this year - the 2nd floor sign is 55" large, brighter and more visible! It's environmentally-friendly, low cost and cuts down on print materials.

Contact Pamela Henderek to learn how! We'll help you.
