    Default Our Logo

    Even though we are the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette, our university logo just says

    University of
    LOUISIANA
    Lafayette.

    Maybe that is one reason we are called Louisiana-Lafayette.

    On the other hand, the University of Texas at Austin has a logo that says:

    The University of
    TEXAS
    at Austin.

    Just wondering if changing our logo to our actual legal name:

    The University of
    LOUISIANA
    at Lafayette

    might make a difference in people NOT calling us Louisiana-Lafayette.

    See attached logo pictures.

    I am all about the name debate and hate that "Lafayette" is on our logos but I must say that you really do bring this topic up way too much. Just saying.....

    The "at" should be 400% the size of the rest of the wording.

    I know some feel that way. But, this is just pointing out yet another inconsistency in how we state our name. Just maybe it is time for UL to get its internal act together on who we are and what we are called officially/academically as opposed to what we want to be called athletically. Use of the "at" is in our official name, yet we ignore that and just use Louisiana Lafayette in our logo. So, guess what people call us? I don't care that our official name is the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette as most major universities have such official names. I do care that athletically, we are LOUISIANA, but don't do everything we can to maximize and promote that and don't allow alumni and fans to buy and wear official approved LOUISIANA gear. Not Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns, not Louisiana Lafayette, not UL Lafayette, not U LA LA, not U LA LAF, not Lafayette, not U Laf, not LALAF, not every other bastardization of our name being used everywhere.

    Respect must be earned.
    When we become successful in the mainstream sports (Football, Baseball, Basketball) then we will rightfully gain respect in what we want to be called.

    Until then....QYB

    I also think you bring up this topic entirely too much. But here's my contribution. Every incoming freshman and transfer has gotten this shirt for a couple years now.

    All in favor, say "I"








    Oh yeah, we also have to approve the model first.

    Not true.

    The The Collegiate Licensing Company approves shortened versions of collegiate names every day of the year.

    Of course, if you don't request, then you are right, they won't do it.

    I was reading the Lake Charles American Press the other day, and they had a couple pages with graduates from the area and what school they graduated from. It was both high school and college. I was scrolling and I came across this one girl who graduated from the "The University of Lafayette." I was like, "Wow! Are they serious?" How hard would it have been to write "UL Lafayette"? I just couldn't imagine a newspaper in Texas printing "The Univeristy of Arlington" or "San Marcos State University." I know I shouldn't expect much from the American Press, but that was outrageous.

    I know she was a graduate but when outsiders see "UL Lafayette" they think the L in UL stands for Lafayette.
