About the Northeastern Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Northeastern University was founded - 1898 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 42.338° N, 71.085° W. 

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