Forward thinking. World ready.
This Is the University Tagline
This is the one idea that you want to
own in the hearts and minds of your most important audiences.
It is preferred that you used the entire
logo, but if you need to use the tagline as a stand-alone
element case-by-case approval is required.
Use the following grammatical structure:
Capital “F” followed by lowercase “orward
thinking”; period; space; capital “W”; “orld
ready” in lower case; period. The preferred font is
Book Antiqua Italic.
This Is Our Name
Our official legal name is Fort Hays State
University, and that is how it should appear the first time

names that we use beginning with a second reference. The
following is a list of acceptable names by which we are identified:
- Fort Hays State University
- Fort Hays State
- Ft. Hays State University

Be Careful with Shortcuts
Even though it is acceptable to use abbreviations
on such things as T-shirts, keep in mind that not everybody
in the world knows what FHSU stands for. Also, using just “Fort
Hays” may create confusion with the Fort Hays historical
The university name must have a TM with
it when it is reproduced on a commercial product. The TM
is not necessary on letterhead and other official university
Our Division Names

publications such as letterheads, course listings, legal
notices, news releases, etc. Check the FHSU Web site or the
