Conference Services Theme

Conference Services Theme - student project

So, I've decided to change my project.  My boss loves the catch phrase "Spend Your Summer at State."  So, I took a swing at a typography design (designed in Illustrator).  I am not sure what to do with it.  It is a little cumbersome for a logo and a little feminine for staff shirts. 

I would like to explore typography & logo design to capture his theme in a more simplified visual graphic.
