University seal created with vision of past, present and future

Most of today's students were not at Cleveland State University on Oct. 19, 1965, to see the University's seal first unveiled .

Recently, at a Board of Trustees meeting, questions arose as to what the symbols on the present seal stand for.

The seal is forest green on white, the school colors. It is a shield bearing buckeye leaves, representing Ohio's state tree, the buckeye.

The seal also contains the Greek alpha and infinity symbols, which symbolizes the beginning of an education that will continues to infinity.

The quill pen, an open book, and a gear represent Ohio's foundation of knowledge, unlimited potential, and CSU's three colleges.

The legend, The Cleveland State University 1964, encircles the crowned shield.

The changes to the seal are still under consideration.

The Cleveland Stater is a laboratory newspaper put out by students enrolled in classes in the Department of Communication at Cleveland State University.
