I loved being at UT. I was in the College of Communications and at the McCombs School of Business. It was a whirlwind going from one to the other every day. Communications was free-spirited and liberal, then McCombs was as conservative as you can imagine.
The first time I saw the Tower lit burnt orange it was stunning. The swimming and diving team was winning championships, so to see the tower lit up and burnt orange, and to see the “1” on there, that was my root.
