About the Hobart and William Smith Colleges Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the years HWS was founded - 1822 and 1908 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 42.859° N, 76.985° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using two of Hobart and William Smith's official primary colors - Purple and Green.
