ELMIRA, NY (WENY) - Wednesday was a big day for Elmira College as they unveiled their brand new logo they will use as the new face of the college and its' athletics.

The new Soaring Eagle replaces the old logo that has been used by the college since 1993, but the college will still use the old logo from time-to-time. Elmira College collaborated with Torch Creative based out of Texas, who has actually worked with professional sports organizations as well as division I universities. The logo released on Wednesday is now three colors and has more of a modern look than the previous logos, and will feature a primary full eagle, with a secondary logo of the eagle head.

WENY spoke with Elmira College Athletic Director, Renee Carlineo, and she said that it's been about a six-month process and that they were "really looking to create a strong, fresh, forward looking logo but it will also be part of the larger college scheme and it fits with the college brand." Carlineo says that they are excited to welcome a new face and a fresh eagle that they will begin using on all apparel around campus and for the athletic teams immediately.
