Because you aren't actually a college student until you own some collegiate apparel, right? Right. Plus it was on sale (still too much for a sweatshirt, but obviously that didn't phase me). It's funny, when I first got accepted at UNCW I wasn't that attached to the school. I applied because it's local and I just needed to finish my undergrad. After finishing my first semester I have grown really attached to the History program and the professors. The whole experience has been amazing. I'm one of those people who will probably have some attachment to my alma mater. Yep, the good ole days.
