The Shirt 2008-09

Lehigh University continues the tradition of an annual, unique student t-shirt to foster tradition and unity on campus.

For the third year in a row, Lehigh University Business Services, the Bookstore, and Athletics have joined forces on developing a new tradition at Lehigh. “The Shirt” is a specialized shirt designed each year and unique to the year it represents. The goal of The Shirt is to foster unity on campus and increase spirit at athletic events. The design of The Shirt 2008-09 features Lehigh’s Mountain Hawk mascot in a rarely used format– the soaring hawk. Tyler Osler, director of athletic merchandise, says “this logo has been available for some time, but we were waiting for a suitable occasion to use it.” Last year, the Shirt Committee reached out to students for an idea for the 2008-2009 Shirt, and students said they wanted something different than the usual brown shirts with plain logos. Osler then agreed to bring the seldom-used logo out of the Lehigh vault. “It was time,” he says. The Shirt 2008-09 is now available at the Bookstore (in-store and online at Lehigh.bncollege.com), Lehighsports.com, and select athletic events such as football and basketball games. It retails for $15.99 at all locations and is only available for the 08-09 school year.
