Purdue North Central Logos

The PNC Signature Logo

The signature logo is the fundamental ingredient of the theme, identity, and character development of Purdue University North Central. It is the foundation on which the representation of the university program and communications is focused, and is imperative that consistent use of its signature remain throughout.

The Panther

The PNC Panther is the campus’ athletic mascot. The mascot was named “Pounce” in the spring of 2003. The Panther appears on athletic uniforms, and can be displayed on the PNC web site, campus publications and items sold in the PNC bookstore. Pounce can be seen roaming the campus during Orientation and special events, greeting students and visitors and spreading PNC pride.

Secondary Mark: The Purdue Seal

The Purdue University Seal should be used only in formal and official communications, such as diplomas, letters of acceptance, and communications from the Board of Trustees and the University president. The Purdue Board of Trustees adopted the current seal for the University’s centennial in 1969. This is the fifth seal used by the University, and it replaced one that had been in use for 73 years.

Contact the Campus Relations Office for guidelines on the use of the Purdue University and Purdue University North Central logos.
