The FSU Seal

The seal depicts a torch and book atop a column encircled by the name Frostburg State University and the founding date of the University, 1898, with mountains in the background. The torch and open book symbolize the enlightenment of higher education, while banners on each side proclaim the dual mission of the University: Scholarship and Leadership. The mountains represent not only the location of the University, but timelessness and endurance, and the column represents the University’s foundation in the liberal arts and sciences.

The FSU Seal is used on official FSU documents and for administrative purposes only. Occasionally there is an exception to this rule. Contact the Office of Publications at 301.687.7794 as to whether you may use the FSU seal on a specific document.
