Chodang University's logo consists of its initials-CDU-linked together in a blocked format. This logo conveys the idea that in order for a successful education to transpire, what is needed is a strong linkage between Chodang's students and faculty, which in turn have been forged by the bonds of close interaction and successful communication. Furthermore, the logo's modern design signifies that Chodang University is future-oriented, and will provide its students new opportunities for them to realize their dreams. This will be accomplished through the Chodang network that is comprised of current students, graduates, university staff members, and contacts throughout society. Therefore, the blue C in the logo signifies our dreams and vision of the future, the red D denotes our passion for this vision, and the gray U represents university-a special place where education is respected and acquired.
