As students walked to classes Tuesday morning they noticed large, vertical billboards stationed on campus. The billboards advertised such products as Powerade, Wellmark and
Drake West Village. Above the ads was the Drake Relays Logo. By 5 p.m., those ads were switched out for the schedules of the men’s and women’s basketball teams.

Brian Brown, associate athletic director and director of the Drake Relays, said the billboards were to drum up support for events at the Knapp Center. He said the decision to move the advertisements there was made recently between campus administrators and facilities. All the proper protocols were put in place to get them on campus.

The advertisements will be on campus until mid- or early March, Brown said. At that point they will be moved back to their spots at the stadium.

“This is not to take away from anything else in those areas,” Brown said.
