SNU Visual Style

The Southern Nazarene University institutional visual style is a bold and confident visualization of the University’s unwavering commitment to its past, present, and future. Customized for the University, the carefully created “SNU” combines both classic and modern design attributes while evoking a strong visual foundation and stance.

The institutional identity embodies strength of character, commemorates a rich spiritual heritage, and amplifies a deep faith in the ever-changing world.

The emphasis of “SNU” in the logo reflects the University’s colloquial identification. The date, 1899, reflects the University’s remarkable history, celebrating the University’s founding and more than a century of commitment to educating students for lives of service to Christ. A visual anchor for the University institutional identity, the date also serves as a point-of-pride for alumni, current students, and future students.
