With this fall kicking off the celebration of 150 years of the rich history and tradition of college football, Tuskegee University encourages its fans around the globe to show that their college colors never fade. Golden Tigers can join in the celebration by wearing their favorite Tuskegee gear on College Colors Day, which takes place on Friday, Aug. 30.
The 15th annual College Colors Day will allow Tuskegee fans to showcase their Golden Tiger spirit by wearing crimson and gold — and sharing that spirit on social media using the hashtag #CollegeColorsDay.
“Our crimson and gold colors represent our long-standing traditions and values, and we hope all Tuskegee fans will participate in College Colors Day by showing the world how proud they are to be Golden Tigers,” said Michael Tullier, APR, senior director of the university’s Office of Communications, Public Relations and Marketing. “Whether you’re on campus or across the globe, we urge Tuskegee fans to use College Colors Day to show that our colors never fade.”
College Colors Day was created by CLC, the university’s licensing partner, to provide a unified spirit day for college fans and supporters. This year’s celebration honors the kick-off of the football season with a partnership with the College Football 150th Anniversary.
Beyond showing their fandom on social media, fans can also visit www.CollegeColorsDay.com to enter for the chance to win a variety of prizes, including two tickets and a trip to the national championship game in New Orleans thanks to CLC’s partnership with the College Football Playoff (CFP), and its charitable arm, Extra Yard for Teachers.
