Central Connecticut State University's old Blue Devil athletic logo.

Central Connecticut State University today unveiled a new Blue Devil logo.

“It has great appeal to people on campus, in the student body, and I think they are going to be excited about wearing it,” said Athletic Director Paul Schlickmann.  “You have a Blue Devil with a sternlook, a hardened look, and I think it is good.”

Schlickmann says the new mascot has some swagger.

The new logo depicts the Blue Devil’s head in profile, with a determined look on his face.

The old Blue Devil was a smiling, cartoonish character with short pants and a pitchfork.

An old interlocking pair of C’s will also be replaced by a new set of logos, featuring the redesigned Blue Devil.

A new costumed mascot was also introduced.  He will be named later, by the winner of a contest.
