Fraternities and Sororities (Greek Life) Organization Names
Greek Life Organizations should include the word “club” or similar identifier in the name of the organization. Identifiers include but are not limited to: “Club,” “Society,” “Association,” “Sorority,” “Fraternity,” “Council,” “Institute,” “Group,” “Committee,” “Students,” “Students For…,” “Campus Ministry,” “Ambassadors,” “Recruiters,” “Fellowships,” “Community,” Greek Letters, and/or “Chapter.”
Greek Life Organization names may include the words “at Auburn University” along with or as part of the organization’s name. Acceptable alternatives include “at Auburn” or “at AU”. This designation may not appear larger than the Greek Life Organization name.
Greek Life Organization Logos
Greek Life Organizations may create their own graphic logo that includes “at Auburn University,” “at AU,” or “at Auburn” but may not incorporate any additional Auburn trademark or references into the logo. The organization name must be included with this graphic. The text “at Auburn University,” “at AU,” or “at Auburn” may not appear larger than the rest of the organization name.
Logos must be approved by the Division of Student Affairs and Office of Trademark Management and Licensing. Submit your proposed logo here.
Greek Life Organization Product Designs
Greek Life Organizations may use the interlocking AU, Auburn University, and Aubie, but no other Auburn University logos, including seal or vintage logos. However, depictions of Aubie need to be reasonably consistent with university’s then current depictions of Aubie, including with respect to size/portion and current demeanor and characteristics.
Designs may contain graphics that reflect the Auburn campus, but the design cannot incorporate the student organization’s logo into the graphic or verbiage or alter the Auburn graphic or verbiage to reflect the purpose of the student organization. Symbols that represent the organization may not surround any Auburn graphic or verbiage or be overlaid on the graphic or intersect with the graphic or verbiage. No patterns or designs may be placed inside Auburn marks.
Any product bearing Auburn University trademarks or references, despite the use, must be purchased from a vendor that has a license agreement with Auburn University Office of Trademark Management and Licensing and is royalty bearing.
No contract printing is allowed.
