Have you ever walked through the hallways and staircases of buildings such as Merion Hall or Mandeville and actually paid attention to the signs and posters that are on those walls? If you haven’t, you’re not alone. Here is a recap of what you’ve missed based on what hobbies, activities or likes you may have. Enjoy, and next time you’re in these hallways or staircases, take a look!


     Merion Hall is the main building for the Liberal Arts community at Saint Joe’s. It holds many pieces of artwork, from photographs to hight size paintings. Many students pass through here those who are Communications majors, Education majors, and even those just taking required Gen Ed’s like theology or English. Because this building is so diverse the posters we found were just that, colorful and full of different types of information.

Here for example is a poster we found that would be perfect for someone interested in becoming a teacher. You can attend a panel of local experts on the topic and gain information that may help you in the future.

Mandeville to many at SJU is known as the business building. This building holds mostly business courses and has many lecture halls and places for groups or organizations to meet. Because so many different organizations come in and out of this building, the posters reflected this.

     Maybe you’re into film studies, or want to lean to draw better, or maybe you want to hear some of your favorite authors speak, or you are interested in pre law, the information posted in Mandeville is never ending and no matter what you are sure to find at least one thing you’d enjoy.
