CORVALLIS, OR -- Oregon State University unveiled a new logo at a special event in Corvallis, Monday. School officials say it pays homage to OSU’s 150-year history.
On the new logo, a beaver sits atop an academic crest, which features a tree, open book, sun and mountains. Three stars above the mountains represent the three campuses in Corvallis, Bend and Newport. The athletic logo has not changed.
Officials say the new logo and academic crest "tell a unique story about the university's mission as a land, sea, space and sun grant institution." A Portland celebration of the new branding is slated for Wednesday, and in Bend on May third.
