About the Rochester Institute of Technology Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year RIT was founded - 1829 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 43.084° N, 77.671° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using RIT's official colors - Orange and White.
