Office of Athletic Communications/Sports Information

The University of the South Athletic Department identity is one of Sewanee's most visible brands. 

This page was designed to communicate the guidelines for using the unique logos, colors, marks and styles of Tiger Athletics in order to differentiate the teams, coaches, staff and student-athletes from other athletics programs.

The marks and logos contained in this page may not be used to represent any outside entity, both on and off-campus, without the direct written consent of the University of the South.

Should you have any additional questions regarding the materials below or regarding the implementation of the Athletic Department brand, please contact the Athletic Communications/Sports Information Director Layton Jackson
