I agree.  The “ new “ MU ( sign on campus and social media ) is bad.

It looks cartoonish, and perfect for a playground. 

And, some of their other branding could use an update.

I'm not saying it's broken, but this is pretty meh. Marquette Hall isn't some instantly recognizable structure, and its a pretty busy image.  Most logos are more clean and simple these days.

For instance, each of these are pretty simple.  Creighton and Georgetown just use words. Xavier uses their athletic marks and fonts, which is pretty rare, but works in this case.

Agreed it is a little busy.  Taking the be the difference slogan off would be a good thing.  The rest of it I’m ok with.  And our athletic logo is fine.  Doesn’t need Marquette spelled out on a banner anymore in my opinion.  It has been around long enough.  People who watch colleg basketball know the logo by now without having to spell out Marquette.

Yeah I think using a square and filling it in is real old school.   Not clean and crisp.   Needs a redo

There is one and only one truly great marketing idea - $10 lower-bowl tickets for Scoopers.

Only requirement is that we stand and cheer at the appropriate times. In other words, no sweater vests allowed.

They might have to fence the scoopers in.   Picture the cowboy bar scene in Blues Brothers.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

I agree. The Be The Difference thing is old and tired. They were using it 20 years ago when I enrolled.

I'm neutral on the Marquette Hall piece of the logo. I agree its nothing amazing, but until I see a better replacement I'm ok with it. Maybe if they stylized it to make it a little bit less busy?

My main beef of this logo is that the letters are too small for signage use. This is what they use for the exit coming in on 90 from the south, and you can't even read it.
Have some patience, FFS.
