Operation Ivy League: T-Shirt Edition
Written by Bwog Staff
Four students, Slav Sobkov (SEAS ’12), Wilmer Cerda (SEAS ’11), Carmen Marin (SEAS ’11), and Elizabeth Pino (CC ’11), have decided to combat negative media portrayal of Columbia this week by raising $11,000 (hey, that number sounds familiar!) and doing good things with it. The plan, run by the group naming itself Operation Ivy League: The Legit Deal, is to sell T-shirts to raise funds for a “larger five-month operation” that will focus on substance abuse prevention and treatment. The hope is that Columbia will “make the news headlines again, but this time for a good reason!”
The T-shirts will read “Operation Ivy League: The Legit Deal” printed on a white cotton shirt, much like the image to your right. T-shirts are $15 each, so they’ll need to sell, according to our calculations, 733.3333-with-a-bar-over-it T-shirts excluding the cost of actually printing the shirts. The Legit Deal hopes to sell T-shirts through the end of the semester.
The Legit Deal trumpets: “It is time for Columbia to come together and show the nation the good that Columbia does every day. Something that is truly lost in the eyes of the outside community and even within our own sometimes-jaded Columbia community.”
