University of Saint Joseph
Earlier this month, I reported that Saint Joseph College was becoming a university. Several commenters asked to see the new sign. Here it is, with the photo from the June 7 post shown at the left. The new sign is a darker blue, the lettering is white instead of gold, the seal is now featured, and Connecticut has been added.
To my eye, the design of the sign is stronger and it is more sophisticated.
I was also asked what the difference between a college and a university is. I have seen different explanations. A common explanation is that universities are generally larger, have a broader academic program, and often have several different colleges, such as liberal arts, sciences, engineering and medicine.
The President of the University of Saint Joseph explains it here.
