HMSU offers a myriad of ways to advertise your events that are occurring in the Union. Each one has their own distinct procedures and we have provided that information in more detail below.

To ensure respect and appreciation for the donors who have made the Student Union a reality, please use these guidelines in all of your promotional material.

A. HULMAN MEMORIAL STUDENT UNION or HMSU is the official name of the facility.

D. Events occurring in the Commons should be referred to as the Hulman Memorial Student Union Commons.
