New logo design

The CRC has a new logo (at right), the result of a contest held during the Fall Semester, 2009. We would like to congratulate Eric Luna (at left), a Communications major specializing in Advertising, who submitted the winning design.

The image, in royal blue and white, with hints of orange (CSUF colors) invokes our Chicano/Raza roots with its use of elements from the Aztec feathered serpent, Quetzalquotl, and Inti, the Inca Sun God. The the mortarboard and diploma represent the Center's Mission.
