The Monmouth University Student Center is considered the “living room” of the campus. It is used by and for the MU community to host lectures, workshops, and events. It is also a place where people gather to eat, socialize, study, and relax. The center maintains this balance by presenting an environment that is friendly and inviting, one that celebrates the University’s diversity of culture and ideas through positive expressions. Since the center is one of the main information locations on campus, it is important that any advertisements posted in the center meet certain guidelines.
