Wordmark Winner Revealed

Dec 02, 2021

Nearly 5,000 students voted on the new PennWest design. Dr. Dale revealed the winning choice in an email to the campus community.

Today, we reveal the clear winner of the wordmark design for Pennsylvania Western University, our three sister campuses – PennWest California, PennWest Clarion and PennWest Edinboro – and our PennWest Global Online division.

We asked our students to select the design when we announced the new name of our integrated university in October. They chose from among three options created by our very talented campus design teams.

Nearly 5,000 students voted. Watch the video to see their choice.

Similar to a logo, the new wordmark will be prominently featured beginning in the spring, pending Middle States approval.

Students, thank you for your enthusiastic response. We have a limited number of T-shirts and stickers for you. Stop by the Natali Student Center today at 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. today to get yours, while supplies last.

Forging ahead!

Dr. Dale
