About the Bowling Green State University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year BGSU was founded - 1910 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 41.379° N, 83.630° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using BGSU's official primary colors - Orange and Brown. BGSU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:

  • White for your passion for nurturing diversity and true belonging
  • Black for your commitment to holistic, comprehensive education
  • Brown for your proud legacy of training future educators
