Plaid about U


Looking for a unique Christmas present for a Georgia grad? UGA now has an official Tartan plaid, in red and black, recognized by the Scottish Register of Tartans, an agency of the Scottish government. The Tartan was designed by Walter Estes (AB ’77, MEd ’98) who donated it to the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. A student committee was formed to determine the best products to develop from the design. The first product, a necktie, is available at the UGA bookstore and on line at Collegiate Tartan Apparel, Other products may be available soon. FACS receives the royalties on all products using the Tartan and will put the money toward scholarships and other programs to benefit students.
