School Insignia and the School Name
The Origin of the School Insignia and the School Name
The School Insignia is modeled after the eagle which flies toward the light of truth, and its figure expresses the essence and the ideal of Sophia University. The characters described in the center of the badge are the initials of the motto of Sophia,"Lux Veritatis," the Light of Truth.
"Jouchi Daigaku" has been known overseas by the name of "Sophia University" from the beginning. The word "Sophia" was taken from the Greek and it means "the wisdom which is expressed in ethical activities that further the goals of human existence." The wisdom, or "SOPHIA" is the ultimate treasure which Sophia aims to give to students.
