Of course, I graduated in 1991, so it is possible things may have changed in the quarter century since I left . But I know the color scheme lasted for several years after I graduated.

Actually, it looks like they still use the dots but a bit more subtle now:
You know, I had a funny feeling you might have been talking about The Wheelmen! I rarely see them near campus, but I do run into them from time to time on LOVR, and Foothill. Always cool to meet Poly grads online and whenever I've traveled. Met an Australian family in West Yellowstone when I was on a bicycle tour, and the dad had gone to Poly, ha!
