Article "Spider Symbol Contest Started"

Description

After the unfavorable reception to the spider symbol proposed by the University Student Government Association (USGA), the USGA started a campus-wide contest to allow students to design their own symbol. USGA Spider Symbol Committee chair Ellen Haden stated that the symbol entries needed to be representative of the University, easily recognizable as a spider, in color, and simple. It was proposed that a committee of faculty and students would review the submitted entries and the student whose design was chosen would win $35.
