After a contest that spanned two months, the University of Alabama’s search for an official tartan is over. The university’s College of Human Environmental Sciences held the competition and selected the designs of three finalists. The winner was decided in an online vote. Linnzi Rich, a junior majoring in interior design, was announced the winner Friday during the college’s homecoming convention. Her “We are Crimson” design is made up predominantly of crimson and white with accents of black and gray… “In the early 1900s, tartan designs were primarily used in Scotland, and they were used to easily identify families and clans on the battlefield and in celebrations,” said Milla Boschung, Dean of the College of Human Environmental Sciences. “They were also used for identifying geographical regions.”
At the College of Human Environmental Sciences, our students are first and foremost. We are committed to the success of all of our students.
