Sorry for the test, learning how to add images. But...here's a logo for a college I SHOULD have attended...the Southern New Hampshire Fightin' Penmen. Looks like my kind of school.

Boy, and here I though MY college teams were cool -- UB had the Purple Knights (which meant that during Parents' Weekend, someone got to dress up in white (knitted) armor with a purple velvet cape and sit on a white horse on University Avenue all week (and no, I never got to be that person... :().

ETA: So, were you testing how to use Upload or doing something else?  I've found that the nice thing about the Upload feature is that clicking the button opens a new tab, so it's easy to go back and forth between that and the page where you want to be posting the image(s) to in a post.  Plus, the only restriction seems to be on the size (1 or 2 MB maximum) and the type of format (I have to remember "no pdf files" occasionally).   There isn't the issues that people using Photobucket had a few years ago when Photobucket basically wouldn't let them post their OWN photos anywhere else); and there isn't a maximum number of images you can post.  It's just a matter of attaching the image and then copying and pasting one of  the automatically generated URLs  into the post.  I mean if *I* (who is not the most tech savvy person around) can do it, anyone can....  ;)

I grew up in Santa Cruz...the University wasn't the ENTIRE reason we left :D

San Jose State Spartans didn't have NEAR the cachet that SNHU has.

Yes, it's for real. 

 

Oh yeah, their mascot is actually famous, as being picked by the student body (who didn't take the idea of a school mascot all that seriously, apparently, so they had fun with it).

Of course probably the best team name I ever ran across was a team that my high school's football team played:  Sleepy Hollow High School, halfway across the county from mine.  SH's team?  Yeah, you guessed it -- they were the Headless Horsemen... (although I always thought that orange and black would have made for better colors than the red and black they actually had).

Our team, the Hornets, had green and gold.  I've hated that color combination for decades...  Which is why I like my college colors SOOOO much better... purple and white.

I forget what my husband's alma-mater's colors officially were.  But effectively, it was the Carnegie tartan.  Pretty sure that's what the Kiltie Band's kilts were -- Carnegie plaid.  We sat next to them at a game one time when my brother-in-law and his wife were in town for a class reunion, (since he ALSO had gone to CMU) and his class got to sit on the 50 yard line -- right next to the band.  And I discovered that the Band had better (and funnier) cheers than the cheerleaders did.  

(Oh, and when you get a Masters degree or Doctorate?  Your hood is ALSO lined with the Carnegie tartan; one former director of my choir has a master's and we went to his graduation party....  And there, proudly on display, was his Carnegie tartan-lined hood.  Edged with the official dedicated color of music degrees everywhere.... PINK.....  :P
