Quinnipiac Students Want Capital U Back in Logo

September 20, 2016

Students at Quinnipiac University have launched a petition to protest a new university logo that does not capitalize the "U" in university. "The outrageous decision not to capitalize the 'U' in university (a proper noun), reflects poorly on everyone affiliated with this institution of higher learning. We feel that the most basic components of English grammar must be recognized in all settings, regardless of stylistic intentions," says the petition.

Lynn Bushnell, the vice president of public affairs at the university, told WTNH News that there are no plans to reconsider the logo. “We have no intentions of looking back, only forward as we work to improve Quinnipiac’s stature and visibility in the higher education community," she said.
