WHAT ABOUT OUR LOGO?

The iconic yellow logo that is used is commonly called “the cheese” in the JSU office. While it might look like a cheese, it had a deeper meaning when it got chosen in 2003. The four corners were to represent the four parts of the organization – decisions, voluntary, service and projects. They all surround the most central part of the organization – you. The circle in the middle represents the student.
