Fun Fact: Why are we the Titans?

Originally the University was referred to as the “Red and White Tigers”, later shortened to just “Tigers”. The “Tigers” name was chosen in 1897 when U of D’s first football team was formed because our jerseys were red and white striped, resembling a Tiger.

In 1924 the Athletic Board of the University decided to change the school’s nickname from the “Tigers” to the “Titans”. The Free Press called the team the “Titans” in an article describing a great win and the name stuck because the board felt that it denoted courage and boldness.

UDM Alma Mater:

Loyal sons and daughters gather,
Raise your voices strong and true,
Sing of our proud Alma Mater,
And her flag red, white, and blue.
Alma Mater U-D-M,
Thy tower watches o'er us still,
With friendship borne on campus fair,
Thy hollowed charge we do fulfill.
Leading thee on toward success,
Detroit's unyielding constant gem,
We pledge our spirit and our hearts,
Our life-long faith to dear old U-D-M.
