A new, more capable electronic message board was approved Wednesday to replace the aged message board that is now displayed at the entrance of the Titan Student Union.

The Titan Student Centers Governing Board (TSCGB) also reviewed the updated operating policies that will take effect once the new message board is installed.

The primary function of the message board will be to display announcements pertaining to campus functions and organizations, such as upcoming events and club meetings, Kurt Borsting, Titan Student Centers director, said.

Implementation of different policies for the new message board will also allow for personal messages to be featured.

“If you wanted to use the electronic board to congratulate someone for a really special contribution, through this layer of approval you can do so,” Borsting said.

People and organizations are allowed to submit messages to be displayed on the electronic message board as long as they are a student or a university-based program.

“The rule of thumb really has been, informally, that anything that is going to be relevant and important to the campus community we try to get up (on the board),” Associated Students Inc. Marketing Manager Katie Meyers, said.

There will be a formal submission process through the ASI marketing department that students or faculty must complete in order to have a personal message appear on the message board.

“If there is approval from ASI marketing or the governing board we will allow personal messages to be displayed,“ Aaron Globerson, 20, marketing major and TSCGB vice chair of services, said.

With the implementation of this new service for students and organizations, the ASI marketing department reserves the right to screen all message submissions before deciding to run the advertisement.

“It’s also mentioned multiple times throughout the document that we have the right to edit or adjust any ad that we receive to make sure that it’s appropriate and what we want to be advertising,” Meyers said.

The space available for personal messages will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.

The new message board has more updated features than the previous message board, providing a wide range of options for font colors and styles

The board also has more memory and space to hold larger files sizes for the displayed slides, Borsting said.

“That new message board is a lot more advanced than the previous message board,” Globerson said. The board will have the capability to upload and display video.

However, it does not have the ability to produce sound, Meyers said.

“I think this is totally appropriate,” Borsting said. “The technology is improved. This is keeping the policies in line with what the equipment can do and how it can serve the organization.”

Pricing information across campus food services and discounts will also be advertised on the message board.

“I think it’s good because we’re updating policy that will help further along when we actually expand the building. Who knows? Maybe we’ll have even an even bigger message board for us to use and this will only set up possibility for it to grow and expedite that process and create more guidelines for it,” ASI Board of Directors representative and graphic design and advertising major, Jonathan Kwok, said.

The motion to approve the new electronic message board revised operating policies passed with a unanimous vote by the board.
