  • Message does not promote consumption of alcoholic beverages or the use of tobacco products;
  • Message does not violate university policies;
  • Message does not advertise products or services of a commercial business except when products or services are being sold as a fundraiser that has already been approved by the Student Involvement & Activities Center, Director of Maucker Union or designee;
