Your University, One Photo at a Time

S is for… Scarves [ABC Sundae]

S is for... Scarves [ABC Sundae]

As part of the upcoming restructuring of the University, one aspect of the University will possibly have to undergo a change: Faculty scarves. Each Faculty right now has its own colours and scarf, some of which are seen above. The middle one is for Social Sciences, the one on the left for Arts, and the one on the right for Veterinary.

Some of the scarves will remain the same after the restructuring, being used as such by the corresponding Colleges and perhaps some Schools. The “old” scarves will still be on sale for the next couple of months.

The scarves are not merely for the Faculties, but for some subjects as well. There are twelve in total, including one for General Graduate. The other eleven as follows: Arts, Dental, Divinity, Education, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Nursing, Science, Social Science, and Veterinary. The scarves are available in the Visitor Shop in the Main Building, as well as in the QMU and GUU shops, with prices varying slightly between them.

I’m wondering whether or not I should buy a Social Studies scarf before they get changed into the new ones? As a relic of the past, in a way. I’ve been pushing off buying one for a while now, for no particular reason. Perhaps the lack of an actual University coat of arms on the scarves is keeping me back. Have you bought one?

ABC Sundae is a fortnightly theme day, occurring every other Sunday, one letter of the alphabet at a time. Click here for more ABC Sundae.

    • Glad you like the site, and welcome to Glasgow University! Unfortunately I’m not in Glasgow for the next few months so I can’t post photos of the specific things you asked for, but as for the Social Sciences departments, most of them are located in the Adam Smith Building, but classes may be anywhere on campus, and the Marketing (as far as I can tell with quick research) seems to be under the Department of Management which is located in the Gilbert Scott Building (the Main Building). I also don’t have any photos of the Maclay residences, but you will find some on the Residential Services’ Flickr page.
