Registration notes: In the Autumn of 2012 over 34,000 Washington State University students, alumni and friends voted to select the Official Washington State University (WSU) Cougar Tartan. The tartan design was a cooperative effort between Collegiate Tartan Apparel (CTA) and the Washington State University Apparel, Merchandising, Design and Textiles Department (AMDT). Several designs using the official WSU colours, crimson, light grey, dark grey and white were provided by CTA and AMDT students and faculty suggested changes. Nine designs were provided to the AMDT students and they selected the top six. From those six, three were selected by a committee including WSU students, alumni, community members and administrators. Those three were then made available for view and students, alumni and friends had the opportunity to vote for their choice on-line. The official WSU Cougar Tartan was unveiled during 2012 Homecoming events. Washington State University was founded in 1890 as the Washington Agricultural College and School of Science and first admitted students in 1892. In 1905 it was renamed to State College of Washington and in 1959 the name was changed to Washington State University. It is Washington’s original land grant university with a mission of improving quality of life. Since its founding, WSU had forged a rich history from stories of remarkable people-scholars and leaders whose contributions transformed lives nationwide. It is now a nationally recognised research university.
