MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – As part of the “Week of Welcome” festivities, the Apparel Ink T-shirt Upgrade will be Saturday, Aug. 16 at 5:30 p.m. in the Centennial Center.
The Georgia College athletic department would like to give you the shirt off their backs, or at least take yours.
Turn in any shirt featuring a different college or university, and you will get a brand-new GC Athletics T-shirt, featuring the Bobcat spirit logo.
"We'd like Milledgeville to be known as Bobcat country," said sports information director Al Weston explaining the rationale behind the program. "It can be the Georgia Tech shirt you do yard work in with the yellow pit stains, or it can be the Georgia shirt that your pet bulldog got a hold of and tore to shreds. We'll take any shirt, no questions asked."
The free trade-out is open to people who bring in shirts from other colleges and universities, while supplies last.
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
