Creating Montgomery College’s New Identity

A representative committee of students, faculty, staff, and alumni collaborated to identify the best colors and mascot ideas to bring to the College community for voting February - March 2012. The vote resulted in the selection of purple, black, silver, and white as the new collegewide colors, which distinguish Montgomery College from other Maryland community colleges. After a follow-up mascot vote, the College community clearly selected the Raptors as the new mascot. The collegewide colors and mascot unify Montgomery College's three campuses and embody the spirit of the institution.
