About the Central Michigan University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year CMU was founded - 1892 - with the geographic coordinates of its Mount Pleasant campus - 43.581° N, 84.775° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using CMU's official primary colors - Maroon and Gold. CMU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Yellow for your passion for building an inclusive community
- White for your pedagogical roots as a teachers' college
- Black for your spirit of integrity, respect, and compassion
