This is for universities and colleges alike.

In order to get the colors for the text and background (along with the official colors), you should try and get what the school itself says they are. Schools usually list identity information online; the following keywords (with a little clicking around) usually unearth them:

  • School name identity standards
  • School name graphics guide
  • School name color palette
  • School name web guide
  • School name logos (Note: often times the standards for color will be listed on the same page (or a page close by) to the logos)

If all else fails:

  • To get the colors for text and background
  1. Find a sports logo for the school and download it
  2. Open it in Microsoft paint
  3. Click on the test tube tool in paint, and click on one color of the image
  4. Click on the "Colors" menu in paint, and click edit colors
  5. Click Define custom colors
  6. copy down the three numbers on the far right (red, green, blue)
  7. In conservapedia, for either text or background, type rgb(#,#,#) - where the numbers are what you copied down.
