Default attributes?

Is there any way to let a customer choose a default attribute to view when shopping? I’m asking because our client sells merchandise aimed at different universities. For example, the same shirt or dress might come in different colors corresponding to the different universities, so it would be lovely if the customer could choose a default university, and see the clothes in those colors by default.

Have you considered just categorizing your products by Universities, where a user can select a University from the layered Navigation and then only see the products available for that University.

I thought about that, but then the user wouldn’t be able to select another University while viewing the product in the same way that they can select another color. See what I mean?
