This symbol serves as a metaphorical gateway or passage to the next steps students will take in their lives. The University Seal also contains a laurel wreath signifying the high achievement of its attendees .
The University Seal communicates the message that the document on which it appears is an official and formal communication of the institution. The University Seal may be displayed on diplomas and certificates, on printed pieces of highest official rank, and on the business papers of the Chancellor’s Office.
