Guidelines for the 125th Year Graphic

The purpose of the 125th year graphic is to provide consistent design and messaging that are within university brand standards when sharing stories or promoting events celebrating the university’s anniversary. Members of the NIU community are encouraged to use the 125th Anniversary logo on social media pages and in printed materials.

Following are guidelines for use of the anniversary logo.

The 125th year graphic was created to work as a unit with the NIU logo. The 125th year graphic may never be used as stand-alone artwork; it must always be in close proximity to the official NIU logo. All uses must be submitted to the Clearinghouse for approval.

Please contact for any questions or alternate versions.

125+ Years Logo

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the anniversary events had to be postponed. As a result, the celebration will continue in 2021. We have updated the logo to reflect the extended anniversary festivities.
