Campus Visit

Visited the UA bookstore while I'm in town to pick up some more UA swag I can flaunt in FL...and sadly there is nothing there I'd wear (35yo male) or be comfortable paying the asking prices for. Maybe I'm more budget conscious now in my 30s and today's hyper inflated economy, but $40 for a Nike t-shirt? Oof. Is that what they sell for at stores like Dicks? $27 for a Champion athletic wear t-shirt? Maybe $15. Maybe. 

Am I cheap? I feel like 'merch' has always been lacking at the school (still can't buy a real jersey as far as I know). 

The Columbia outerwear is pretty good though but quite useless in my geographic situation. 

That being said the new campus center (new to me at least) is a vast improvement over what I had in 2016. University did an excellent job there. If I was still a student I'd be spending a lot of time there. 

Can't wait to attend the CCSU game and experience a nice fall afternoon at Casey...hope the team can get a W.

Try Boscovs. They have more reasonably priced stuff.

Used to work there in my teens...probably worth a nostalgia visit anyway! Thanks! 

Boscovs is the only department store around here that has local college gear and a lot of Penn St stuff being a PA company. They might still have some Scooby shirts.
