University units include colleges, departments, institutes, centers, labs and offices. The official university signature represents all Mississippi State University departments and offices; however, an individual unit may wish to identify itself by using the unit name through the use of a secondary signature. With the unit name below “Mississippi State University,” the unit name receives prominence while retaining an overall university identity.

We Ring True™ can be used in text copy if it includes the trademark symbol afterwards. We Ring True™ can be used in advertising and on promotional items, but the art cannot be modified. We Ring True™ is available for download in multiple file formats in maroon, black and white. See below for individual files or click here to download the complete WRT logo package.
Along with the official MSU maroon being Pantone 505, below is a sample of approved support and accent colors that can be used in promoting the academic side of the university in print and on the web. Secondary accent colors may be used as a way to highlight an area in a color that works with maroon, but isn’t maroon for those instances when you need to draw attention through supporting colors while still promoting MSU. You cannot use the secondary/accent colors without using maroon. Maroon should always be the dominant color in university publications.
