LETTER: Some Fighting Sioux fans support Sioux's new fight
I have read the letter, "UND Sioux nickname fans don't support what real Sioux are fighting for" (Page A4, Aug. 30). And in my opinion, the letter's claim is false. I am a forever Sioux fan, and I do support what the tribe fights for against the Dakota Access Pipeline. I would be...

LETTER: Fly away forever, Fighting Hawks name and logo
As memes of the UND Fighting Hawks logo—which clearly illustrate its origin as a mash-up between the Burlington Northern and U.S. Postal Service logos—spread like wildfire across various social media platforms, the university has become a national laughing stock. Before...

LETTER: UND fans, it's time to accept reality and move on
OK, people, let's get to the real issue here: no matter what the new logo design looked like, it was never going to be good enough. It is done...

LETTER: UND's new logo lacks 'personality' and 'verve'
UND has unveiled its new Fighting Hawks logo. The problem is that the university certainly didn't get its money's worth by investing some $50,000...

LETTERS: No need to outsource UND's logo design
The news stories about UND's logo-selection process disturbed me. Why do we have to go out of state to find someone or some firm to design a logo for the UND Fighting Hawks? Isn't there an art department at UND or somewhere else in North Dakota that could do this? Can Herald readers...
