Clicking the EPS link should initiate the download process. To download JPGs, click the link. The image should load in a new window/tab and then you can right-click(PC) or option-click (Mac) anywhere on the image to choose ‘Save Image As’, ‘Save Picture As’ or ‘Download Image to Disk.’ Finally, choose a location to save the image; then click ‘Save.’
The University Seal
Diplomas and certificates are the only approved use for the university seal. It is not available for general campus use.
When to use the logo
The basic rule for whether the logo needs to appear on a publication is whether it is intended for audiences beyond campus. A flyer posted by a student group on campus does not need a logo. A brochure sent to prospective students, or an advertisement placed in a newspaper does. Generally, the logo should be placed on the cover and/or back of a printed piece. It should be prominently placed and unobscured so that it can be quickly seen at a glance.
Offset Logo (primary mark)
