The Lane University Center Digital Signage System consists of 14 monitors placed in the Lane University Center lobbies near main entrances and outside of each main meeting venue which offer student organizations, FSU offices and departments and local businesses a new and exciting way to get the word out about events, opportunities and meetings. The goal is to inform and market events to the FSU campus and community to increase engagement at Frostburg State University. An average of 3,200 people travels past these monitors daily.
