Since the 1940s, Fordham Rams logo has repeatedly changed, but the designers did not depart from the ram theme. In 1941-1947 the mascot animal was painted with dark red lines on a white background. In 1994, a new version appeared – with a confident ram, one form of which expressed anger. Black shadows with burgundy spots enhanced the impression. Below was the inscription “Fordham.” All letters were capitalized, although “F” and “M” were significantly higher than the rest.

In 2001, the developers left the old style, but reduced the head and moved it down the emblem. The upper half was taken by the word “Fordham.” The modern logo was adopted in 2008. It is a large letter “F” with three contours (white, gray, black) and the head of a ram depicted in a half-profile.
