University Logos

Logo History

Institutional Logos

The Institutional Logo is the university’s primary logo and serves as the identifying mark for the institution, both internally (on campus) and externally (in the public).

The logo was adopted in fall 2007, after professional, comprehensive market research studies by RSUPR – the university’s Office of Public Relations – with the assistance of the Cubic Agency of Tulsa. The official logo was approved by the University President and Administration.

The Institutional Logo features a line drawing of a cornice of Meyer Hall – one of the university’s oldest buildings, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The cornice reaches skyward, projecting an image of strength, optimism and progression. The cornice is distinguished by repetitive dentil molding and is supported by a Greek-inspired column. The column can be found adorning many campus buildings. To the right of the drawing are the words “Rogers State” on the top, in red, and “University,” on the bottom, appearing in reverse in a blue box. “Rogers State” in red highlights the name of the institution and projects its dynamic and progressive nature. “University,” grounded in a blue foundation, depicts the institution’s history and philosophy of providing an educational foundation in the arts and sciences. The logo font is Garamond.

It is important to present a single, clear visual identity for the university by using only this officially approved Institutional Logo. The logo should not be manipulated or distorted in any way and should not be used in combination with any other images or type to create another image. The logo should not be re-proportioned, customized, tilted, or boxed in any manner. The logo should appear on all university publications and advertising (print or electronic), using one of the following versions.

Athletics & Spirit Logos

The Athletic and Spirit Logo, which features the “Hillcat” mascot, serves to brand the university’s Athletic Programs, as well as Student Activity and certain “school spirit” functions.

The Athletic and Spirit Logo was developed and officially unveiled to the campus in 2005, after professional, comprehensive market research studies by RSUPR – the university’s Office of Public Relations – with the assistance of SME Branding of New York, N.Y. The official logo was approved by the University President and Administration.

The Athletic and Spirit Logo features the head of the proud and determined “Hillcat” mascot, with the university’s initials, RSU, in the Runway font.
