Rooted in our commitment to the values of diversity, engagement, and community, OCL strives to promote the ideals of leadership, empowerment, and civic capacity through a comprehensive college life program. Utilizing an integrated approach, OCL bridges our institutional core values with evidence-based practices to produce high impact programs and services that celebrate and fosters a climate of respect, integrity, and inclusion. We provide opportunities for students to engage and develop their full potential and prepare them to be responsible and engaged citizens of the world.

  • Logos must be representative of the organizations.
  • Logos must be submitted as both Vector graphics files (e.g. Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape) and high resolution PNG files both with transparent backgrounds.
  • Logos must be submitted as both full text versions (De Anza Student Government or Office of College Life) and abbreviated versions (DASG or OCL).
  • Logos must be suitable for various uses at different sizes online and in print including on clothing and items such as pens.
  • Logos must be simple, reducible, and be equally impactful both in color and in black and white
  • The original application specific files must also be submitted (e.g. .ai).
  • You are not required to incorporate the De Anza College Logo or De Anza College Mascot into your designs, but if you decide to do so you must adhere to the following guidelines:
    • The symbol and logotype must never be redrawn, revised or altered.
    • Logo or Mascot elements cannot be cut apart
    • If you need to resize the image to fit your publication, the proportions must be the same as the original version (i.e., do not stretch it).
    • EPS files can be reduced or enlarged.
    • PNG files can only be reduced. Enlarging a PNG file will result in a poor-quality image.
    • Never attempt to re-create the words "De Anza College" with a desktop computer's limited font capabilities.
