50th Logo Contest

St. Andrews Equestrian Program turns 50 in 2019! The first horse came to campus in 1969 and there has been an equine presence either on campus or on property owned or leased by the college since that date.

The Equestrian Program is looking for a creative, innovative and professional logo to use throughout the anniversary year. The logo should be recognizable, celebrate the 50th anniversary and help promote the college’s mission through the lens of the equestrian program.

”The University’s mission is to offer students an array of business, liberal arts and sciences, and pre-professional programs of study that create a life transforming educational opportunity which is practical in its application, global in its scope, and multi-disciplinary in its general education core. Students will acquire depth of knowledge and expertise in their chosen field of study, balanced by breadth of knowledge across various disciplines. Special emphasis is placed on enhancing oral and written communication, and critical thinking skills.”
