Don’t panic; the feeling that Choose Red conveyed is still alive and well on campus. You can see it in the spirit of our undergraduates at home athletic games, during campus events, and throughout the University.
In partnership with this new campaign, we unveiled a new icon as a permanent part of our campus identity. This new academic icon represents the rich history of UCM. It features one of the best-known landmarks on campus, the Administration Building. Built in 1916, the three-story building provides a unique and distinct image for the icon, making it stand out from other institutions. A versatile building that once housed classrooms, a cafeteria and a pit theatre, and now provides an auditorium for world-class performances and much more, the Administration Building resonates with current students, alumni, faculty and staff, and the Warrensburg community. The cardinal red and black coloring is immediately recognizable as part of the UCM brand. Our foundation year is prominently displayed, which not only demonstrates the university’s nearly 150 years as a leader in education, but is a nod to our university seal, which also includes 1871 in its design. The icon in its entirety was created to evoke a sense of academic pride. It stands as a symbol of legacy, hard work, and innovative higher education.
