Auburn Releases New Update On Potential Logo Change

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Back in August, the Auburn Tigers announced a change to their logo. Two months later, the school’s plans were reportedly getting rid of the new design.The new logo for Auburn would do away with wasted white space between two letters. This would be easier for embroidery and small-replication purposes.Although the modification to Auburn’s logo isn’t anything major, there was outrage from the community about the changes. Fans usually prefer the classic logo for their teams.While the previous update stated that Auburn was scrapping the idea of a logo change, the university revealed that the original plans are actually on hold. From The Auburn Plainsman:“We have temporarily postponed implementation of the AU logo within the new system to allow opportunity for continued dialogue with stakeholders,” Preston Sparks, director of university communications services, said in an email statement Tuesday to The Auburn Plainsman. “The recommendations are not yet mandated.”This goes against what Student Government Association president Mary Margaret Turton said earlier in the week. She stated in a meeting on Monday that Auburn won’t change its logo.Since the Tigers have postponed their plans, it’s fair to wonder if it will ever happen.Until Auburn makes a final decision on whether or not to go through with the adjustments, the school will use the classic logo.last_img read more
