This momi growls proud and loud.
I am a proud AB Journalism degree holder. And I graduated from the University of Santo Tomas (UST). It saddens me, though, to learn that UST will not offer Journalism for this academic year. Reports take the blame to the low number of qualified applicants – an effect of the K to 12 program.
Curiosity leads me to read further. Only six students qualified to take Journalism. This number was way below the required quantity. A possible class needs at least 40 enrollees. Another course cancelled was Legal Management. It only had 11 qualified enrollees.
Anyway, I have a story to tell.
When I was in college, I never had any campus shirt. My allowance then was just enough for my daily food and transportation. I never had any club as well that would require me to wear one. There was a time I watched the UAAP at the Cuneta Astrodome. Everyone was in yellow with a growling tiger print in front. I was wearing a plain yellow top. After the game, I hoped for my own campus shirt.
I wouldn’t say half of my time was spent wishing for a college shirt. I forgot everything about it until last week. When I got a package from Coolegit Clothing. They gave me my first UST campus shirt!
And the feeling was surreal.
“I am too old for this,” I told myself. Yet I still wore it when husband and I went for a walk with the boys. And I felt proud.
I realized wearing a college shirt shows you are a part of a group. It is an identity — your badge of pride. I walked that day with pride.
It is for this same reason Coolegit Clothing came to being. They would want to provide campus shirts of exceptional quality that represent the school. And the wearer would feel proud. And I felt proud that day. And believe me. As I do not want others to think ill about my university, I was so mindful of my actions that day. Wearing your school’s identity somehow dictates a stricter atmosphere that positively encourages you to be prim and proper.
proud and loud
I will meet a new friend tomorrow. And I plan to wear my UST shirt. Wearing one lessens the getting-to-know-you questions. And if we came from the same alma mater, I know we will immediately feel comfortable.
So, do you want your own college shirt? Coolegit Clothing is one of the many I know that has an expansive collection of creatively designed clothes. Aside from campus shirts, Coolegit Clothing also offers jacket, polo shirt, bags, and ID lace among others. I attest to the quality of the materials used and the uniqueness of the design.
