The Poster Sale, located in Rooms 220-221 in the UC, has already drawn many incoming freshman and returning customers.
Students wanting to take advantage of the sale’s last week may go from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The majority of posters range from $7 to $20, and students can pay using their All-Star accounts.
The sale will close shop on Friday, Aug. 28.
Lucky Haskins, manager of the sale, which is hosted by the Pyramid Art company, said, “Sales have been about the same as last year, but there is a greater selection. There’s more of a variety for films, movies and music.”
Top sellers have been posters for the movies “Inglorious Basterds” and “Twilight,” as well as Audrey Hepburn posters.
Daren Chandler, junior in sport management, spoke highly of the event.
“There is something for everyone at the sale this year, and the quality of the posters are great and not flimsy,” he said. “I value that UT has this opportunity to allow me to express myself through a medium such as a poster. It says a lot without me saying anything.”
Students will have a chance to catch the sale again in January, at the start of the spring semester.
The UT Parking and Transit Services Office has opened a new N-16 non-commuter lot at the corner of Lake Avenue and 22nd Street. Lots previously used as non-commuter lots along Andy Holt Avenue, Melrose Avenue and Franics Street have been redesignated as Staff 28 lots.
The Staff 23 lot at the intersection of Pat Head Summitt Street and Volunteer Boulevard has been closed to prepare for construction on the new Student Health Center.
Parking Services will now be issuing parking tickets, a task that was overseen by UTPD in recent years. Along with the new protocol, Parking Services has a new logo that is displayed on their vehicles and uniforms.
