Promoting Commencement

Jul 12, 2016

2015 saw the first ever OHIO Fall Commencement, and it was a different sight to see the commencement banner strung over Court Street along with the annual holiday decorations. In the spring, UCM collaborates with Event Services and Planning and Implementation to pepper the campus with banners honoring graduates, and fall commencement was no different.

A countdown banner was displayed outside the Convocation Center on the intersection of Schafer and Richland with a Velcro number that changed daily in the lead up to the big event. The idea was originally born from a collaborative planning session for spring Commencement with members of UCM, the President's Office, and Event Services to explore ways of promotion. 

UCM partnered with Athletics to display the banner in front of the Convo.
