Meaning and history

Northern Michigan Wildcats Logo history


In 1993, the athletic teams that represent Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, adopted an emblem where the head of a cat was encircled by the name of the university and the word “Wildcats.”
In 2016, they introduced a new design. The head of the cat here looked somewhat similar to the previous version of the emblem, with a couple of notable differences. The typography was developed from scratch. This time, the text was positioned below the pictorial part of the emblem.
