Whether you choose to use the logo construction in this section or not, it’s important to pay special attention to your organization’s name.
When considering your organization’s name, please use a descriptive word such as club, group, association, chapter or society. These words differentiate your group from an administrative or academic entity. Your group’s name should never be confused with an official program or department on campus, and should not be misinterpreted to represent the university as a whole. Therefore, in certain circumstances, an organization’s name may need to include additional qualifiers such as “student” or “students”.
Please be aware you are not permitted to use University at Buffalo or UBuffalo in your group’s name.
