Meaning and history

RIT Tigers logo history

The tiger theme has been very pronounced on the RIT Tigers logo since at least 1976. On the logo introduced in 1976, you could see the side view of the tiger walking to the right. Below, the large letters “R,” “I,” and “T” in black could be seen.

In 2004, a more dynamic and emotional emblem was introduced. Now, the tiger was walking out of the lettering “RIT Tigers.” Both the old and the current logos share the same color scheme including orange, white, and black.
