Fequently Asked Questions

Worcester State University’s current marketing and branding showcases the University’s reputation for excellence and portrays it as a university on the move: new residence hall, new wellness center, and academic programs that are rigorous and relevant. As part of our new campaign, the University adopted a new logo consisting of a wordmark and a newly designed seal. The logo is available for general use. However, there are many versions of this logo. Users must also be careful when placing and resizing it on a document. An official brand-standards manual and several logo files are available for viewing and downloading at
