About the Coastal Carolina University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year CCU was founded - 1954 - with the geographic coordinates of its Conway campus - 33.796° N, 79.013° W. 

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

  • Teal for your passionate commitment to truth, respect, integrity, and excellence
  • Brown for the guiding light of your teacher-scholar model
  • Black for your spirit of innovation and risk-taking
