What does the symbol on CFCC’s new Union Station stand for, or is it just a design?

The design on CFCC’s Union Station building is the college’s logo. Photo courtesy of Cape Fear Community College.

Here’s the answer, according to David Hardin, the public information officer for Cape Fear Community College:

“The design is the official Cape Fear Community College insignia. It appears as the central graphic element in the college’s seal and the logo. It was designed in 1988 when the college changed from Cape Fear Technical Institute to Cape Fear Community College. The curves on the left side of the design represent the letters “C and C”, which signifies “community college.” The overall design is meant to represent a nautilus, sea shell or wave to acknowledge the college’s coastal location. The shading inside the segments of the insignia have been updated over the years, but the frame (which is what is on Union Station and on the Hanover Street Parking Deck) has remained the same.


Why does CFCC run its parking deck lights all night?

What do CFCC and UNCW do with money earned from ‘One Tree Hill’ and other productions?
