The Beaver and OS spirit trademarks are reserved strictly for use by the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and its entities. The Athletics spirit marks should never be used in place of the Oregon State logo or in communications representing the university’s academic areas, research centers, institutes or student groups. The official Oregon State beaver logo is a protected trademark by the university and is never allowed to be customized or altered in any way.
We request that you do not use any stylized, animated, hand drawn or other versions of a beaver in places that are typical for a logo. This undermines the logo system and brand consistency. Using photos of beavers in content areas where logical is ok. For example if you are doing a story about research on beaver habitats it is logical to add photos of beavers and their habitat. However, including an illustrated beaver in the header of your brocher, web site or poster would naturally be considered a logo and is not allowed. Please consult with OSU Trademark Licensing if you have any questions or need further help.
