After nearly six months of development, Belmont University and the Department of Athletics unveiled their new athletics logo on Tuesday. The new logo is an updated version of the previous mark introduced when Belmont University introduced the “Bruins” nickname in the fall of 1995. Featuring a growling bear and new Belmont script, the logo change coincides with the opening of the Curb Event Center on the south end of the campus.
“This is a time at Belmont where a lot of different things are going on. In coordination with President Dr. Robert Fisher, we decided it was time to reintroduce Belmont Bruins athletics to the Nashville community,” stated Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing Eric Jones. “It is just perfect timing with the opening of the Curb Event Center, an arena we feel will be one of the best facilities in the country.”
Local firm Dye, Van Mol and Lawrence created the new logo. The same company was chosen to develop the new Belmont University logo earlier this year.
The mark will be featured at center court on the new arena floor and will become the prominent symbol at all athletic venues and on team uniforms. Official merchandise bearing the new mark is available exclusively at the Belmont Bookstore on campus or via the internet at www.belmont.edu/bookstore. Additionally, a new Bruin mascot will be rolled out at a special new student gathering on Belmont
