So, for the past several years our SPS Chapter (Purdue University) has been producing our own departmental shirts. The store that used to sell them in the area dirt cheap got shut down for illegally using the Purdue name on their apparel, so we picked up the slack since we are lisenced to used the Purdue name (fun how that works, huh?) They're your standard gray t-shirts that say "Purdue Physics" on them. But they're not a lot of fun.

Another thing to keep in mind (In addition to what I mention on the Fundraisers thread http://the-nucleus.org/bulletinboard/TDetails.cfm?TID=95) when running your SPS chapter is that as students, you can get away with a lot of stuff and at a lot of places, the administration will just sigh to themselves and say "Oh, those quirky students. Always coming up with the cutest ideas. They're physics majors, they don't know any better."

So our shirts are...special =) For example, my freshman year the t-shirt was on the front a low quality drawing of a meadow like you'd see on a drug commercial with "Physics" written across the sky. I'll try and get a picture of this...

On the back it says, "Side effects may include:

Not your typical shirt, is it?

Last years shirt looked like this (we havn't designed this year's yet): http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~sdalal/front.jpg and http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~sdalal/back.jpg
