Fresh flags will grace campus

Look for new UNCG banners to grace the campus’ lamp posts soon.

The current banners, which have withstood the elements for several years, were in need of replacement. Staff in Undergraduate Admissions and the Division of Continual Learning created a new set of banners. The two divisions developed an online polling process. Additionally, the options were shown informally to dozens of new graduates at May’s commencement, to get their perspective.

Two options emerged in a very tight race. A design featuring a large Spartan was the overall winner, with 310 votes. Several Minerva designs were popular as well, with the large Minerva design receiving 245 votes. The two designs will be placed strategically across the campus.
