Helpful Hints: Chalking
Reminder: Only FSU entities may chalk messages on FSU's campus.
Use powder-based chalk sticks. Do not use liquid or spray chalk or any other material.
Chalking is to be done on concrete surfaces (no brick or cobblestone areas) that are parallel to the sky in which chalk substances can be washed away completely by rain.
Do not chalk on the vertical sections of stairs/steps or on any facility.
Chalking is to be done in open areas that can be directly cleaned by rain. Do not chalk under awnings, bridges, tents or structures that have roofs/covers.
A chalked message is to promote an event/activity and shall represent dates/times/locations for that activity including the name of the sponsoring FSU entity.
Your organization / department may be contacted to wash-down your chalked message if it is done in an improper area or if it lasts for more than 2 weeks.
If chalk substances or markings cannot be removed, organizations may be charged for cleaning and/or damages.
