Logos are nice to look at. Solid programs leading to good jobs in the future are your meat and potatoes though. If we don't offer up a robotics degree, now might be the time.

If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

I absolutely agree. Why robotics engineering wasn't added when we have far more experience with that than electrical engineering is lost on me. Robotics are the future!

Maybe we should take a look at IIT's curriculum offerings? Not everybody is interested in going to school at an urban campus in a massive and dense Mega city.

Maybe Western could add some of what they offer?

New brand guidelines (including logo usage starting at page 17): http://www.wiu.edu/vpaps/marketing/doc ... elines.pdf
Something I'd like to point out...no bell tower logo :D

Also, for anyone who watched Dr. Abraham's presentation the week before classes started, you might have already seen this, but this video illustrates our new brand "identity".

I have sense that our "core values" will be changing with a focus on these pillars. If those pillars represent the brand, they represent Western.

Awesome to see the new block W logo appear on the website today, replacing the bell tower and the QC campus logos!

It's going to take a little while to get everything changed across all the web stuff, but we're getting there. It's going to take a while on some of the more "permanent" things...like signage around campus will be updated when it needs replacing, for example.

:lol: There is a Mississippi Valley State University, but only a Missouri Valley College, although we do play football in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Could S vs C be a new dyslexia issue (MVS - the school, vs MVC - the conference). Or, it is like to me, anything east of Naperville and north of I88 is Chicago, much to the dislike of my suburbian friends :mrgreen:
