A cheap way to dress up dorms

On Wednesday, Jan. 19, posters were seen everywhere you looked as Cabrini College held its annual poster sale in Jazzman’s Café.

From the old school classics like “The Breakfast Club” to favorite TV shows like Friends, the poster sale had every kind of genre that you could possibly imagine.

The posters were all resonably priced. Ranging between $5  to $15, there were all different kinds of sizes and layouts for any particular interest.

The posters aren’t just shows and movies though. Some other types of posters they had included memorable movie quotes, famous Chuck Norris quotes and pictures of well-liked movie stars.

“Marilyn Monroe is probably the most popular poster out of them all,” Eric Hassel, co-worker of the poster sale, said.

“No matter where we go, everyone always seems to love her.”

Not only do they sell posters, they also sell tapestries that always seem to be a big hit, which sell for around $17.

“I always look forward to the poster sale because of the tapestries,” Shannon Mulhern, senior business major, said .

“Our apartment on campus is decorated with a lot of different tapestries that we’ve collected over the past four years.  I always like to go to see what kind of new designs they have.”

Lately college students have been favoring the tapestries to hang on ceilings and walls. They are reuseable from year to year which is a major plus for spending the money and

then there is the whole fact that you are helping to save the environment. Also tapestrys provied a home-like feeling to the poorly lit dorms. According to SEaL, who runs the

event every year, the poster sale has been going on for over six years and they come once a semester.

If you missed your chance this semester, don’t worry because they’ll be back in the fall.

“We make out pretty well doing the poster sale,” Hassel said. “We’re not making millions of dollars, but the kids seem to enjoy it.”
