The University of Missouri–St. Louis community is pulling together with the start of a fall semester unlike any other now two weeks away. That semester will feature a mix of blended and online classes starting on Aug. 24 and limits on large gatherings as the university takes steps to protect the health and safety of students, faculty and staff amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The UMSL community can continue to thrive together, and those returning to campus will see that message of pride unity on display in “We are UMSL Tritons” graphics now adorning the exterior walls of several campus buildings.

Wendy Allison, the lead graphic designer for University Marketing and Communications, designed the graphics. Craftsmen Industries installed them on campus buildings, including the Mark Twain Athletic Center, Lucas Hall, Recreation and Wellness Center, J.C. Penney Conference Center and Music Building, over the past week.

Campus photographer August Jennewein captured images of the new graphics on a recent tour through campus.
