Reflex blue and antique gold. The bold colors of Coppin State University are immediately recognizable. Confident and distinguished, the colors weren’t always as they are now.
Selected in the 1930s when Coppin State was a teacher’s college, the university’s original colors were pastel blue and pastel yellow, both favored by its mainly female student body. As more men began enrolling in the 1940s, the colors were changed to the familiar blue and gold of today.
Paired with the proud blue and gold is Coppin’s mascot: the majestic eagle. Representing courage, nobility and strength, it’s as fitting for today’s Coppin student body as it was over 100 years ago.
