From the famous Leonardo da Vinci painting “The Last Supper” depicting the last meal Jesus shared with his apostles before his crucifixion to singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey and her exposed navel, Concord University’s collaboration with major poster vendor Beyond the Wall offered dorm decor to suit any style and interest. Whether students were returning to campus for another year or facing their first semester away from home, posters and pictures are a fantastic way for students to feel more at home on the Campus Beautiful. 

Students gathered on the bottom floor of the Jean and Jerry Beasley Student Center near the university bookstore on August 18 and 19 to browse the monstrous variety of posters available for purchase. The posters were laminated with thick and durable plastic so that students could easily admire the full length and width of each without fear of damaging the products. Multiple sizes were available to fit any space, from small squares the size of a textbook to massive full-size posters, and prices were labeled beneath most posters to prevent confusion and streamline the buying process. Students moseyed around the tables and examined posters that reflected their own personal interests from the hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  

Also available were ornate tapestries of different colors, shower curtains, poster tack for hanging posters on dorm walls while still adhering to housing contracts, frames of all sizes, bookmarks and postcards featuring bands, abstract art, scenery, religious depictions and famous classical paintings. There were also numerous posters featuring motivational quotations like “Believe you can, and you are halfway there” and sweet blurbs such as Andy Warhol’s belief that “There should be a course in first grade on love.” 

Although chaotic and buzzing with excitement, students remained gracious and waited in line patiently to purchase their new decorations. Beyond The Wall couldn’t have made a better impression during the back-to-school buzz, simultaneously providing a reason for new and old students to abandon the safety of their rooms and mingle and top-of-the-line posters and other accessories.
