While the old logo of the athletic teams representing Bethune–Cookman University possessed a more emotional style, the current one looks more professional and refined.

Meaning and history

Bethune-Cookman Wildcats Logo history


The previous Bethune-Cookman Wildcats logo, which was introduced in 2000, sported a stylized cat’s head. The wildcat had its mouth open showing sharp fangs. The ears were positioned lower than they are typically found when a cat is calm, which reinforced the menacing impression of the muzzle. While the creature looked pretty realistic, the design was somewhat cluttered for a truly successful logo. Also, the colors failed to create a decent contrast.
The emblem unveiled in 2016 is a monogram consisting of the interlocked letters “C” and “B,” the initials of the name of the university.
