CWRU blue is the color of 2020

Classic Blue

Each year, the color experts at Pantone name a color of the year. For 2020, the selection is a hue near and dear to our hearts: Classic Blue.

What makes blue so special?

In describing the ethos of Classic Blue, Pantone underscored some core values at Case Western Reserve University:

"Instilling calm, confidence and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era."

Pantone calls the color non-aggressive... easily relatable... thought-provoking… reflective. No wonder the CWRU community drapes itself in it. We are Classic Blue.

2020: The year of blue. The year of CWRU. The year of you.
