UWO may remove University College tower from logo

October 17, 2011

Part of the University of Western Ontario's logo since 2000, the University College tower could soon be dropped from the institution's emblem. “The current logo doesn’t allow for a connection between the tower and any of the individual faculties or units,” says UWO's VP External. “It restricts our ability to use the university’s name with that of our individual faculties, student centres or institutes.” UWO is surveying students, faculty, and alumni on changing the logo, the wordmark, the colours it uses, the style of its photography, and the words used to describe the institution. If modified, the changes could be introduced as early as next year, with adjustments phased in over time. London Free Press
