About the Vanderbilt University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Vandy was founded - 1873 - with the geographic coordinates of its Nashville campus - 36.144° N, 86.802° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Vandy's official primary colors - Gold and Black. Vandy's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Gray for the heartbeat of your diverse, engaged community
- White for your commitment to cross-disciplinary study
- Yellow for your spirit of open inquiry and intellectual freedom
