Changing to that name is incredibly dumb. When you look up university of providence on google and yahoo there is only one entry for them on the first page, everything else his for providence college and the university of Rhode Island (providence) . Unless I'm missing something what does providence have to do with great falls Montana?

From press release.

"brings the university back to its roots, founded by the Sisters of Providence and Ursuline Sisters in 1932"

 

Even though it seems more of the hospital getting the naming rights than anything else. (Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH) system)  Makes you wonder if this is something you will see happen in the future.  Instead of a company getting naming rights for an arena, they just go for the whole university.

It definitely grabs your attention.  The problem with most new changes is that most companies don't have the exact color you switched to ready for rollout.

Awful name change, given that "University of Providence" sounds like it should be in Rhode Island, and is easily confused with Providence College.

 

The helmet logo looks like an infinitely uglier version of Michigan State's logo.

In some ways, the new logo is actually worse. It feels like the current Sabres & Lions logos - a minimalist base with too much needless border detail. I would like the new logo better if they let the blue and green touch directly without the white buffer between every shape. Something like this rough draft:

The blue and green contrast enough that they don't need all that extra detail between them. Maybe a simple white border around the entire logo for application on green or blue backgrounds. The wordmark would be fine enough with no border at all.
