Wear your college colors on August 29
Aug '08
Orange and blue, garnet and gold, and purple and white are only a few of the thousands of color combinations to be worn throughout the day of August 29th in celebration of College Colors Day 2008. Join hundreds of thousands of people as they go to work or school wearing apparel representing their favorite college or university.

College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promote the traditions and spirit that make the college experience great by encouraging people across America to wear apparel of their favorite college or university on August 29th.

Additionally, College Colors Day, which coincides with "back to school" and the kick-off of intercollegiate athletics, strives to advocate higher education through increased public awareness, and celebrates the achievements of colleges and universities, acknowledging their fundamental importance.

"College Colors Day has been embraced by organizations, businesses, state governments, and most importantly, colleges and universities from across the country," said Kit Walsh, Senior Vice President of Marketing for The Collegiate Licensing Company. "We hope College Colors Day becomes a lasting and memorable tradition for all participants for years to come."

The Collegiate Licensing Company, a division of IMG Worldwide, organizes College Colors Day.

Leading up to College Colors Day, several marketing initiatives will take place helping to promote the big day.

• Colleges and universities, as well as several companies, will support and celebrate the day in a variety of ways.
