Two easels in use in the Johnson Center Atrium. The easel on the left points students and visitors to an event happening downstairs, and the easel on the right advertises Corner Pocket!

Easels allow Mason organizations and departments to advertise their events or their organization as a whole within the Student Centers buildings. Organizations can decorate an easel how they want – either by placing a poster or flyer of their own or by drawing on the easel’s whiteboard surface.
