Students look for encouragement through posters
EDITOR’S NOTE: Central Michigan Life will occasionally send a report and photographer to find a quick story of what’s happening on campus. This story is the second in the series, “Scenes on Campus.”
Matt Ferschneider cannot live without posters.
Especially in his residence hall room.
“It’s like sitting in a jail, especially if we don’t have any posters,” the Harrison Township freshman said of his new home.
Ferschneider and his roommate, Cameron Amateis, also a Harrison Township freshman, are among many students who visited Central Michigan University’s Bovee University Center Rotunda this week.
The pursuit: To cover their walls and make their living spaces their own.
The fun is part of a poster sale sponsored by The College Poster Sale Company. The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m today.
Ferschneider and Amateis are particularly interested in movie and music posters. Amateis likes ’70s classics and Ferschneider, hip-hop. Both hoped to find something other than the norm.
“(I want) something unique, something nobody else would have,” Amateis said.
Ypsilanti junior Stephanie Holmes hoped for a wider selection featuring John F. Kennedy and President Barack Obama.
Holmes is studying law and hopes to one day become a governor. She considered buying a poster of her hero John F. Kennedy at one point, and said she enjoys when she can be inspired by their presence, even if in paper form.
“If I read about them, it encourages me more,” she said.
Holmes’ room is covered with images of Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix, an environment which she says is not conducive to studying.
Into the arts
Kevin Nevorski was interested in a bit of everything, but preferred the art prints on display.
“I like them to be interesting so you never get bored of them,” the Chesterfield senior said.
His favorite wall decoration was a print of “The School of Athens” by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael.
The famous fresco depicts dozens of history’s greatest scholars and philosophers gathered in conversation at a great Roman hall.
“They put a lot of stuff in their paintings, so you can keep looking at it and seeing new things,” Nevorski said.
