New Gordon State College Seal Revealed


The new Gordon State College Seal was officially revealed Saturday to alumni gathered for Alumni Weekend.

Central to the redesigned seal is the columned arch that is a replica of the portico of Lambdin Hall. The title of the book penned by beloved former faculty member Miss Marion Bush - Character, Culture and Scholarship - forms a drape over the columns.

The new seal came about as part of the recently completed strategic planning process. During the process the strategic planning committee - which was made up of faculty, staff, alumni and community members - discussed the need to protect and honor the history and heritage of Gordon State College. So the seal was redesigned to better recognize the present Gordon State College while linking to the college's past.

The Gordon State College Foundation, alumni advisory board, staff and faculty all approved the new design. The new seal was also approved by the University System Board of Regents.

It will be featured on all official documents and will make its debut on May 9 on diplomas which will be awarded to the Class of 2014. It will also be displayed on the Gordon State College Mace and as part of the president's regalia.
