Font Family Properties

We've employed a web font system that uses two open-source font families as a complement their print counterparts: Oswald and Merriweather.

Both font families are designed for legibility to use freely across the Internet by web browsers on desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices. Better suited for the screen, these web fonts reflect the same typographic hierarchy that is a foundation to the University's brand.


Oswald is used for larger headlines and pull quotes. Oswald replaces Garage Gothic as our primary san serif typeface on the web.


Merriweather is used for intro text, body paragraphs, and links. Merriweather replaces Garamond as our primary serif typeface on the web.

Two Column Typography

By utilizing two columns on a page (snippet: "Split Columns"), more content can be available to the user without having to scroll. In mobile view, the columns will respond to the smaller screen display and stack vertically.
