About the EMU Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year EMU was founded - 1849 - with the geographic coordinates of its Ypsilanti campus - 42.250° N, 83.624° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using EMU's official primary colors - Green and White. EMU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Lime Green for your diverse, inclusive community
- Black for your high rates of postgraduate employment
- Dark Green for your spirit of excellence, integrity, and respect
