Penn State Homecoming unveils 2021 logo

April 19, 2021

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State Homecoming revealed its 2021 logo on April 17 in a video before the Penn State Football spring practice game, as a part of the annual Legacy Celebration.

The logo was selected to reflect Penn State Homecoming’s 2021 theme “Together, State Prevails,” which was announced by the committee this past February during THON.

The logo was designed by Cameron Soravilla, a junior graphic design major in the Stuckeman School of the College of Arts and Architecture at Penn State. Soravilla’s design was one of eight finalists for this year’s Homecoming logo.

“The parade is iconic to the history of homecoming; I wanted to capture its essence through the car driving forward, leading the parade,” said Soravilla. “I used the silhouette of a vintage car to help make the logo accessible to people of all ages and invoke the feeling of nostalgia.”

This is the second Penn State event for which Soravilla has been able to contribute her designs. She also served as the Graphic Design Captain for THON 2021.

“I am so grateful to have been able to share my skills for two major Penn State events,” she said. “THON and Homecoming have allowed me the opportunity to use my skills to positively affect the image of a brand and interact with members of the community.”

The logo will be displayed on all things Homecoming, ranging from merchandise to parade floats. Homecoming merchandise featuring the new logo will be on sale during the fall semester. Penn State Homecoming is planning to hold events, volunteer hours and fundraisers in the fall semester, to culminate in Homecoming week, Sunday, Oct. 17, through Saturday, Oct. 23.

The executive committee for homecoming is considering both online and in-person activities based on University-sponsored regulations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic at the time of the event. All University safety requirements will be followed.

Penn State Homecoming is a student-run organization which aims to celebrate tradition and instill pride in all members of the Penn State family through active engagement of students, alumni, faculty and staff across the University community. The organization is comprised of many student volunteers who donate their time to creating a multitude of events that make the Homecoming celebration a yearlong event.
