If you have questions about what is acceptable, please contact the Marketing and Communications Department.
Fonts Helvetica Neue and Minion Pro are the official college font families used in our signature logo. These fonts are not bundled with Microsoft Office, so when producing print materials, acceptable substitutions are Garamond or Times New Roman for Minion Pro and Arial or Helvetica for Helvetica Neue.

College Name There are three acceptable options: SUNY Erie, State University of New York - This is our most formal name and used on all communications for national audiences.

The college’s first Athletic Director Larry Katzman began his SUNY Erie career in 1950 and referred to the athletes as the legendary Kats, thus the name of SUNY Erie's athletic players and teams today – the SUNY Erie Kats. The logo represents the college’s winning tradition as a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association.
