University of Michigan Tartan

64 Signatures Goal: 100

We the undersigned support the idea of a University of Michigan tartan. The university should make a tartan official because: 1) Michigan State University, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of Chicago (one of our oldest and most historic rivals) all have tartans. 2) It allows for a whole new way for students to "display their colors." Tartans can be printed on many different garments, from ties and scarves to skirts and kilts. 3) It allows for students and alumni to wear the blue and maize in very formal settings (be it a kilt, skirt, tie, or vest). 4) We can wear kilts to football games without being mistaken for Notre Dame fans! 5) Adopting a tartan can be as easy as simply announcing it. 6) It is a very acceptable thing to do. Many American universities have tartans, apart from those listed above: University of Nebraska University of Kentucky (Gaines Center for Humanities) College of William & Mary Maryville College Monmouth College Lyon College (Arkansas) Lees-McRae College Alma College Virginia Military Institute Warren Wilson College Oregon State University University of California Riverside University of Tennessee University of NC Greensboro Furman University Auburn University Clemson University Western Carolina University University of Wisconsin (Wisconsin in Scotland) Carnegie Mellon University University of Missouri We hope that you will see that a tartan is in demand, and that it would not only create a cool new way to show the blue and maize, but will also add a unique historical touch to the university itself. Signed,
