    The logogram of the University of the Assumption contains figures and colors that do have their respective meanings relative to the philosophy, ideals and aspirations of the institution.

    The dominant figure in the seal is the torch. This symbolizes EDUCATION – the core of the academic community and the very reason for its existence. Assumptionist education is envisioned to be enlightening, liberating, transforming and edifying. It brings out the best in the human being and purifies him with Christian virtues, of faith, hope, charity and other fruits of a truly Catholic training, thus, the blazing rays of the torch.

    In these rays can be seen the formation of the cross, symbolic of the University as a Christian Catholic Archdiocesan Educational Institution, a status unique to Assumption, not only in the Philippines but in the whole of Asia. Thriving under the shadow and light of this timeless mark of Christianity, UA is destined to follow the paradoxical logic of new beginnings from endings, possibilities from limitations.

    The torch is on top of a mountain, from either side of which can be seen lines that level off. This mountain is Mt. Arayat, the most prominent natural landmark in the province. Its visibility from all corners of Central Luzon, coupled with the symbolism posed by the two descending lines, implies the vast geographical area within which the University’s influence is aimed to be felt in the years ahead. UA seeks to serve, not only Pampanga, but the contiguous provinces of the region, including Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, and Zambales, together with the cities situated in some of them.

    Inscribed inside the seal are three Latin words: Scientia, Virtus and Communitas. This trilogy summarizes the vision-mission of the University: Scientia, for Quality and Academic Excellence; Virtus, for Human Development and Christian Formation; and Communitas, for Church Participation and Community Service. Knowledge must lead to virtue. Knowledge and virtue must ultimately lead to community service.

    There are two main lines running through the figure: one in royal blue and another in fire red.Blue is the Marian. Mary will always be the mother of the Assumption family in the Christian community. Red, on the other hand, signifies the University’s intense commitment to the goals and objectives of the Department of Education, (DepEd.) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in regional and national development.

    The red line forms U: University, while the blue line forms A: Assumption. Since her elevation to University status in 1980, University of the Assumption has become the official name of the school, superseding other names used in the past, notably Assumption Junior College (at the time of founding in 1963) and Assumption College of Pampanga (1965-1980). This name appears in the upper portion of the seal’s outer rim. In the lower part of the same rim is the University’s address: City of San Fernando, Pampanga, Philippines.

    Nestling the whole logogram is a yellow gold base. This represents the Church, the University’s source of inspiration and the foundation of her strength in the apostolate of educating the youth of the land.

    A rope enriches the whole emblem. This signifies the quintessence of solidarity that binds all members of the UA community in the goal of building a better and greater Assumption, not only today but also to the next millennium. Together, administrators, faculty members, personnel and students share in the collective vision of transforming the University into a major vehicle of change and progress as she continues to serve God and society by way of education.

  • Hymn

    Neath azure skies, oh stand the walls
    we’ll ever hold so dear
    Where truth and light abiding bright
    Show us the road so clear.

    Refrain:
    Hail Assumption, dear Assumption
    Hail from your children true.
    From north to south, from zone to zone
    Your light will guide us through.

    The winds that dance across the lawn
    All sing of Mary’s name
    In verdant grass and sunlit halls
    We witness heaven’s aim.

    Hail Assumption, dear Assumption
    Hail from your children true.
    From north to south, from zone to zone
    Your light will guide us through.
