Two internal organizations use the Johnson Center Atrium pole banners to promote themselves to the Mason Community.

Banners are a great, compelling way for internal organizations to promote themselves to the Mason Community. Banners hang in the Student Centers buildings and allow students and other visitors in the buildings to learn about these organizations at a glance.  

Reservation Privileges

  • Student organizations and Mason departments may reserve up to 28 days per banner per semester. Once a single banner has hung for a total of 28 days in a semester, it cannot be repeated and hung again. The organization may submit a different banner to hang for another 28 days if the limit has been reached.

Who May Reserve Banners?
