Very much an upgrade. Also, I like the 'W' under the eye. I guess for Winston, but a nice touch for sure...if it was intended.

If you check out the hype video I posted at about the 1:23 mark the show a less detailed version (don't know proper word) of the logo without that random W that still looks pretty good.

Unpopular opinion: I like the old ram better. I feel like this is just another generic ram logo. Nothing unique or special about it. The wordmark font is also repeated many times in collegiate circles: Jacksonville State, UMass Lowell, Bridgewater State, Rhode Island College (D3), and it moves up to the Portland Trailblazers.

I don't like the W at all. It seems poorly "hidden" and tacked on for no real reason organic to the actual design.

It's a Division II HBCU. It had a cup of coffee in the MEAC in 2008-2010. Basketball HOF Earl Monroe went there.

 

They also played for the Division II football championship a few years ago.

 

I'm probably biased because I'm 30 minutes away from Winston-Salem and work in both academia and sports, but I guess it would be easy to forget about WSSU. There are 18 Division I and 20 Division II athletic programs in the state - you're probably going to forget a few.

 

As for the ram, it's an upgrade, but I don't love it. It somehow already looks dated - something just screams 2008 about it to me.

Why 2008, specifically?

I just picked a year in the late 00s.

This logo/wordmark, specifically. Multiple outlines and bevels. The others don't have any outlines or bevels or shading, which would be more akin to contemporary design. The ram logo is detailed (not overly), but simpler logos have been more en vogue recently.

And lost. =) 

It's about time they updated. The old logo looked....odd...to me.
