Online voting now open for official MSU tartan

Mississippi State University's School of Human Sciences is encouraging members of the Bulldog family to help select the original plaid design that will become the Official MSU Tartan.

Voting is limited to one vote per person and will end Oct. 15. Visit to cast your vote today.

In fall 2016, 40 MSU fashion design and merchandising students created original plaid designs with the possibility of becoming the Official MSU Tartan. Under the direction of Professor Catherine Black, the designs were narrowed down to 15 semifinalists that were voted on by MSU officials. That vote resulted in the three finalists provided in the link above.

Once the voting is complete, the winning design will be submitted to the Scottish Register of Tartans for designation as the Official MSU Tartan.
