    Within the past few years, my district and school have gotten into doing college days. We wear college shirts with jeans. This year for convocation we are required to wear a college shirt. I've been wearing the same one from one of the colleges I graduated from for some time now and would like to change it up.

    Besides going through the campus bookstore, what other places can I check? I would love to get some from universities up north.

    Email admissions and ask them to send you one. I've gotten about 30-40 pennants this way along with other "swag", including a t-shirt!

    If you want to pay, I buy a lot of my college (and pro) gear from Fanatics.com.

    If you are a woman, I buy a lot of things from VS Pink's Collegiate Collection. Super cute stuff (but I'm still in my 20s).

    Love fanatics....
    Trying searching Kohls. In the search keyword put your school name.
    Have you looked at Walmart or Target....they have them sometimes.

    Maybe you could find some people on here willing to do an exchange with you! Send them a Texas school shirt in exchange for their school!

    I just ordered from here (shirts with my school name and mascot).
    I bought 3 polos, 1 long-sleeve, and 1 sweatshirt.
    You can get college gear here, too.

    I agree, but people tell me I'm too old to wear my VS Pink stuff "out" (like to work). Many of them are the same people that tell me I look underage when I order a drink and get carded.:rolleyes:

    I know that Kohls has campus heritage apparel. Unfortunately, I only found one that carries it. I even check in one of the Kohls in the Chicago area. They have some cute ones from the popular universities in this DFW area. I'm more interested in schools outside of TX. I already have one from TX.

    Anyway, I'll see if online I have better luck. Thanks!

    How did you get those pennants? Did you just e-mail admission reps?

    Thanks!

    This thread motivated me to order a shirt from my grad school university from which I graduated in 1997! Can't wait until it gets here!

    Awesome! :thumb: I know I'm getting a bit carried away but I already purchased a shirt from dh's parents school & in the process of getting one from dh's school as well. I would like to get one from my under grad school too but haven't seen one I like yet.

    Yup. I said that I teach seniors and have a college wall of pennants. Then I asked them if possible could they send me one and included my address. A lot sent different things. UK included pencils, lanyards, pens, etc... Most also include an informational guide.
