Alumni Association Symbols

Bob Jones University is a leader in the realm of Christian higher education. Our name and logo are important assets that are recognized around the world.

This document constitutes an identity/usage guide to aid you in creating documents that meet the Alumni Association’s visual identity and quality standards. For approval to diverge from these guidelines, please contact the creative director at Marketing Communications, the chief enrollment officer or the chief communications officer.

The strength of a visual identity system is realized only through consistent application over time. The Alumni Association’s policy is that the official logos, marks, fonts and colors described in this manual are the only approved marks for use.

  1. No other marks, symbols, fonts or colors may be used to represent the Alumni Association as a whole or any part thereof.
  2. These resources are intended solely for use by the Alumni Association, Bob Jones University and officially authorized groups. Any individual, group or company external to the Association requesting further information regarding the use of our marks should contact the creative director, Mark Fuller.
  3. Any official materials associated with the Association that the public may see—whether in print, online or around campus—must include one of the elements below.
  4. Official Alumni Association materials must be produced by the Alumni Association or Marketing Communications. If you are unsure about a particular project, contact Jonathan Pait, manager of events and services for the association.

 logos

The shield serves as the primary emblem identifying Bob Jones University. It is comprised of quarters resembling a heraldic shield.  Learn more about the Charges (icons on the shield).
