Alexander Hamilton Mark


The Alexander Hamilton mark is a representation of the College’s namesake, Alexander Hamilton, in his Continental uniform. The likeness of Alexander Hamilton establishes the connection between the person for whom the College is named and the nickname for the College’s athletics teams. It also conveys the spirit and values of the College community and the institution’s emphasis on being a school of opportunity. A poor and orphaned immigrant, Alexander Hamilton overcame adversity to become one of early America’s greatest public servants. His opposition to slavery, along with his financial acumen, service in the Continental Army, persuasive writing and eloquent speaking make him a worthy representation of the College that bears his name.

Alexander Hamilton Mark

This mark may be used in any application approved for official College graphics and is not restricted for use by athletics. The use of this mark is intended to be secondary to the primary athletics and institutional graphics. It should appear as a separate element and not in close proximity to a primary graphic. Some typical approved uses for this mark would be:

  • On a sleeve or a collar where primary athletics or institutional graphics appear visually more dominant on the front or back of the shirt
  • On an inside or back page where primary athletics or institutional graphics have already appeared in a visually dominant way elsewhere
  • On a Web page or as an icon where primary athletics or institutional graphics have already appeared in a visually dominant way

Color options

• Blue   • Buff   • White   • Black   • Gray   — are the only colors permitted with the color versions of the Alexander Hamilton mark.

The color options are shown below. Please note that the primary College color is Continental blue and it is always the preference to include this blue in the presentation of graphics. Ideally an item using the graphics on a black background would have blue present elsewhere on the item, for example a black jacket with the graphics as shown below on the black background might have blue side panels, or the bottom half of the jacket could be blue. Graphics placed on shades of grey should follow the images shown below.

Alexander Hamilon color backgrounds

The Alexander Hamilton mark is also available in all black; typically it would be used on a white background, but there may be occasions for applications of another background color.
