Trinity Western University

1983

Blue and Gold

In 1983 Dean of Students Arvid Olson announced to Director of Physical Education Gary Naylor that "The Administrative Committee has approved your recommendation that the athletic team uniform colours become blue/gold/white rather than brown/gold/white. Student Council has supported this colour change ..."
Memo, November 8, 1983 [TWU Archives: F 3 B 15 File 11]

The transformation took some time, but eventually touched everything from signage and university letterhead to team uniforms and umbrellas.
