ETBU Unveils Centennial Logo

100 years ago, the very spot where I sit and type this was simply a hill.  No Scarborough.  No Marshall Hall.  Not even the College of Marshall, which would become East Texas Baptist College, then East Texas Baptist University.

Just a hilltop whose destiny would be forever changed by the formation of the University we now know and love.  It has been an amazing 100 years!

So we’re going to spend this next year of 2012 honoring those 100 years!  What a better way to kick it off than with the recently unveiled Centennial Logo.

The logo was developed through collaboration with the Centennial Council, the President’s Office, and the division of Enrollment Management and Marketing.

The logo incorporates the official lowercase ETBU and name with a banner featuring our official school colors, the word Centennial, and the date of our founding 1912, and the 100th year, 2012.  The logo also features a symbol of the University, the Beacon, and the numerals 00 to create 100.

The Centennial Year will be a busy one, including 4 special editions of the Hilltop Magazine, all dedicated to various point of University history, a Centennial themed 2012 Homecoming, and many more events throughout the year.

Help us celebrate the Centennial Year of East Texas Baptist University!  Stop by campus, get involved in an event, and don’t miss Homecoming this year.

It has been an amazing 100 years and we look forward to the next 100 years!

Way to go ETBU and HAPPY BIRTH-YEAR!!
