Tarleton has an Official Tartan

Pick it now, wear it later

Our Tartan Story

In August 2018 Drs. Randy McCamey and Karol Blaylock felt the university was ready for a tartan pattern to call its own. Inspired by an upcoming trip to Scotland, the two professors created a pattern and shared it with the Department of Marketing & Communications. After consulting Collegiate Tartan and a few versions of the pattern, we are proud to share our official tartan with you, named Ever Forward, Ever Onward.

Why Now?

In recent years Tarleton has celebrated its centennial, launched a new spirit mark and prepared to open a new campus in Fort Worth, so the time is perfect to introduce an innovative, yet traditional symbol as a way to identify and rally the Tarleton faithful.
