The largest student union in the country has made several efforts to improve its attraction to students and guests. It started with extensive renovations in 2000 and 2011 which totaled $65 million. Inside, visitors can enjoy a 550-seat movie theatre, art exhibitions, the OSU Student Store, student lounges, and digital signage displays provided by ConnectedSign.
Listed below are a few of the many displays at the Student Union:
•13 signs used for general/advertising/videos
•13 signs used for wayfinding
•4 welcome signs featuring event listings
•2 signs used for testing, 1 in Marketing and 1 in I.T.
•1 interactive kiosk used for wayfinding and searching the staff directory and department directory
When asked how the digital signage displays helped the OSU Student Union’s image, Debbie Shotwell said, “the digital signage we incorporated into the building serves many different capacities. We use the digital signage for wayfinding, event promotion, promotional video displays and menus. It has been extremely helpful in assisting us with building our brand and supporting our mission in a professional way.”
