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
