Easels and free-standing advertising 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, or they can even provide their own free-standing banner or other advertising materials!


Easels are only reservable by Mason Departments and Registered Student Organizations (RSOs).

Mason Departments and Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) may reserve up to 6 easels or free-standing advertising locations for no longer than 14 consecutive days.

White board easels are provided and set-up by Student Centers staff.

Free-standing advertising banner space must be reserved. Please indicate in the request that you are providing your own materials.

Only 1 easel or free-standing advertising material can be placed in each designated location.


If you are having trouble locating the appropriate space or have a question regarding your easel set-up contact Student Centers at 703-993-2921.
