The official Southeastern logo consists of an "S" illustrated with an oval graphic treatment surrounding it. The name, SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA UNIVERSITY, sits below the illustration in upper case type with special emphasis on "SOUTHEASTERN." This combination of information is called the "signature." We also refer to it as the "logo" or "official logo."
The signature was designed to serve as the cornerstone for Southeastern's image identification program and is used in combination with specified typography.
The construction of the logo should never be changed. When enlarging artwork, care should be taken that the signature is not stretched or condensed beyond its original proportions. It should never be altered or re-drawn. It should only be reproduced from original artwork available from the Office of University Communications and Creative Services.
The University's official logo may appear in two-color or one-color versions or in black and reverse. When using color, only the approved Pantone Matching System (PMS) color should be used. These inks are readily available at most commercial printers.

Secondary Mark Examples
In some cases, due to the structure of the document, web page or publication, the following wordmark may be used. This wordmark is simply the signature (logo) without the horizontal lines and the graphic "S". This provides flexibility, yet still maintains consistency.
This type-only treatment of the identity is used on the Southeastern Web pages, on certain billboards, in recruiting materials, and in certain other applications. It should not be recreated using typefaces or fonts, but should be obtained from the Office of University Communications and Creative Services.
The University Seal
The seal is the official academic identity of the University that is primarily used in legal applications, on Southeastern diplomas, and other documents of an official or formal nature. It is not intended for general use as part of the university's public identity.
