Mount Union is known for “bleeding purple” and it is now time to celebrate the Purple Raider connection. Whether you are an alum, faculty or staff member, student, community supporter, family member or fan… celebrate the University of Mount Union!

Prizes will be given throughout the day (while supplies last) and the first 250 people wearing Mount Union will be given an exclusive 25% off coupon at the University Store on Mount Union’s campus. Plus, if you’re sporting Mount Union attire, you can register to win your very own Mount Union purple prize pack and get a free hot dog.
