UT Campus Scenes
Here the historic Littlefield Fountain, which began operating March 1933, commemorates UT students and alumni who died in World War I.
Major George W. Littlefield, an early benefactor to the university, funded the fountain which cost $250,000 at the time and was sculpted by Italian-born Pompeo Coppini. The fountain features Army and Navy soldiers on each side, with goddess Columbia in the center with the palm of peace and the torch of light and freedom. The memorial fountain is inscribed in Latin. The translation reads, “Short life hath been given by Nature unto man; but the remembrance of a life laid down in a good cause endureth forever.” Beneath this inscription is a memorial bronze plaque that lists all UT students and alumni killed in World War I.

We saw incredible SWA Group designs in Italy, China, Houston, and Dubai—just to name a few. The event, which was hosted by our Career Services office, was well-attended [and even the Dean of the school was there!].
Many, many thanks again for keeping our students inspired today!

A note on the back of the photograph reads, “Campus drive with Sutton Hall on right, Barker Tex. History Center on left, Garrison in the distance.”
Can you spot the Old Main building? It’s partly visible on the left.

We’ve asked our #UTSOA students to share their travel experiences on Instagram by using the hashtag, #UTSOAtravel. We think that this photo from destroybuild—aka Ian Ellis [BArch ‘13], a recent graduate of our school—is really great. Keep on sharing!
