Presenting photographs I (and my guest contributors) have taken of our nation's institutions of higher education, along with their surrounding communities, this site is maintained by Dr. Alan Reifman of Texas Tech University. YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO ENLARGE THEM.
One of our Texas Tech graduate students, Kim Corson, gave me some pictures she took at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas, while traveling in the region (Canyon is roughly two hours north of Lubbock). West Texas A&M had been known until 20 years ago as West Texas State University, before being annexed by the Texas A&M University system. (The flagship of the system is, of course, Texas A&M University in College Station, way in the southeastern portion of the state.)
The athletic mascot for WT A&M is the Buffalo, depicted prominently in this fountain complex (below).
The inverted nature of the fountain -- that water travels down instead of up -- matches the Inverted Fountain at my undergraduate alma mater, UCLA.
What I also found stunning in the WT A&M photos is the clock tower (and its reflection), with which I formed the following little triptych.
