About the San Diego State University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year SDSU was founded - 1897 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 32.776° N, 117.071° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using SDSU's official primary colors - Red and Black.
