UT colleges as spring bouquets

As spring approaches, I can’t help but think about all the beautiful flowers that will soon blossom. So with that spirit in mind, here are the flower arrangements I believe best embody each UT college. 

Cockrell School of Engineering

Without a doubt, if the Cockrell School of Engineering were a flower arrangement, it would be the iconic Lego flower set. It’s different, imaginative, and takes work to assemble. However, It’s pretty and fun, but it does come at a cost, much like being an engineering student!

COLA is a huge melting pot of different people and majors, and it’s only fair if the arrangement reflects the same thing. Varying in both flowers and colors this bouquet will have something for everyone!

Any earth lover and plant enthusiast would find this bouquet perfect for any occasion. It’s simple yet has a lot to offer, and it’s sure to last longer than most flowers with proper care.

Keeping the joys of teaching in mind, this bouquet gives off the most comforting and radiant energy. It reminds me of flowers I would give my first-grade teacher, and she would keep them on her desk.

You can never go wrong with a classic. The reason why white roses in a glass vase have worked for this long speaks for itself. It’s a timeless combination, and just like art, it’s sure to live forever.

A more earthy approach to a classic, this arrangement is clean and professional. It’s sure to look good in any space; it’s very functional! 

College of Pharmacy

White and blue seem to be the typical colors of the pharmacist uniform, so it’s only fitting that the flowers reflect that. Blue and white are such an underrated combo, much like the College of Pharmacy, yet look how much it gives us! 

McCombs School of Business

Dark and to themselves, there is nothing more McCombs than this arrangement. It’s pretty, but you probably wouldn’t get this to brighten up your space. 

Moody College of Communication

Loud yet subtle, Moody is full of creativity and imagination while maintaining professionalism and emphasizing the importance of connection. This flower bouquet will make a great impression while adding color and beauty wherever it is. 

Final Thoughts 

I’m a firm believer that every college has so much life and personality to them in their own way, and just like flowers they always have room to grow! Each is special and beautiful in its own way.

UT Colleges as Met Gala Looks

This year’s Met Gala presented us with dazzling red carpet looks. The theme for 2021 was American Independence.  To add a fun UT spin to the event, I put together a list of the Met Gala looks that resembled UT colleges the most.

Ms. Kim Kardashian never fails to put on a show. What exactly is this cloak supposed to mean? I can’t be completely sure. However, I do know she was wearing Balenciaga head-to-toe and couldn’t help but be reminded of our liberal arts buddies. So much indecisiveness, yet so secure.

Our dear friend Emma Chamberlain. Didn’t she look stunning in Louis Vuitton? I don’t know about you all but I loved the sparkle. She looked classy, sexy and gave the carpet exactly what it needed: a straight-to-the-point look. At Moody, communication is all about being straightforward and doing it with grace. 

Steve Hicks School of Social Work

Lupita Nyong’o always takes my breath away. At first glance, I couldn’t tell that her dress is well… a jean dress? She took the jean jacket to a whole other level. The dress was unique in its own way for the same reason our school of social work is: filled with integrity and passion all at once.

College of Natural Sciences

Supermodel Kendall Jenner looked fantastic, as usual. She shined with her Givenchy see-through dress and it made me think of the largest college at UT. Ms. Jenner is one of the most well-known supermodels and she delivered the energy of the dress beautifully. The College of Natural Sciences acts in the same manner: a very popular college, but very necessary. 

Cockrell School of Engineering

Anok Yai was breathtakingly beautiful. She looked glowy and glamorous with her Oscar de La Renta dress. She gave us a glimpse of the #10 best engineering college according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities. Both Anok and Cockrell do what they do best simply because they are who they are: leaders and record breakers. 

McCombs School of Business

Ben Platt gave us a fun, sparkly cowboy look that automatically made me think of Texas. The McCombs School of Business is just like this rhinestone cowboy look: innovative measures on traditional designs. 

While it may be hard to envision yourself in these pricey looks, remember that you can see a little bit of you in everything! Even if it is just your UT college.
