SORC

Organizations must provide 250 4x6 inch table tents by Thursday at 2PM for Sunday morning placement. If, for example, your table tents are scheduled to go up on Sunday the 14th, they must be submitted by Thursday the 11th. Deadlines are earlier during academic breaks (Fall break, Spring break) and holiday weekends (Thanksgiving).

Student employees of SORC will place table tents only on Sunday mornings.  Unlike Diag boards and Banner Poles, there is no "follow up" route later in the week for table tents. Advertising areas include:

  • Michigan League: Underground, Maizie's
  • Pierpont Commons: Ahmo's seating area, Piano Lounge, Atrium, Recreation/TV space by convenience store, Fireside Cafe
  • Palmer Commons:  Fields Cafe, study areas on 4th, 5th, and 6th floors
  • Fishbowl Computing Site: study areas throughout the site
  • Michigan Union : MUG, Study Lounge, Art Lounge

SORC is responsible for inserting about 1,800 table tent advertisements every week. This requires a several hours and three different drivers, so this route is only completed once a week. If you miss the Thursday deadline, you have the option of loading the table tents yourself, but you must do so onsite in four buildings; you should expect to spend 6-8 hours loading the signs. You must clear this with SORC management, so you can be properly advised of which ads can be removed to make room for yours!

U.U. Custodial employees are advised not to disturb table tents, but SORC does not assume responsibility for table tents that are damaged or discarded before the reservation expires. Unless you submit a request in advance to reuse them, Table tents will be returned to SORC on the Sunday that the reservation ends.  They will be sorted and recycled by SORC student staff on Monday.
