Guidelines and best practices on content

  • Advertised events must be open to all of the SCSU community.

  • Content must be directed to the St. Cloud State University community and have a named campus sponsor.
  • Due to space/time limitations, messages promoting weekly or monthly meetings are not permitted.
  • One slide per event or notification displayed at a time.
  • Messages promoting events at bars or promoting alcoholic beverages are not permitted.
  • The system is not a storage area; remove all files and links after the end date.


  • Use a minimum of text/information as the slide is displayed for only 10 seconds.
  • Signage design must be:


    • 781 x 541 pixels
    • JPG file type
    • LANDSCAPE orientation
    • Properly named file: Name the file to be uploaded to the system with reference to the category folder and the end date for when the slide is no longer to be displayed. Example: “honors-promotion-10may2017.jpg”. Slides displayed without an ending date, may be removed.
