Me, Myshirt, and I.

Contributed by Sara Jacobs on 06/16/21 

View printable version

Do you have an old t-shirt that you just can’t part with? Maybe it holds sentimental value, makes you smile, has a special catchphrase, or captures you at a different time in your life. Perhaps it was from a concert or event you attended, a gift, a prize, marks an accomplishment, or it's from a place you visited, traveled to or lived in long ago.  Every time you sort through old clothing you just can’t seem to let this shirt go – even if it’s torn, doesn’t fit anymore, or hasn’t been worn in years.  

Well – you're not alone!  T-shirt folks unite!  Go find your special shirt for the staff photo project Me, Myshirt, and I.  We'll be collecting self-portrait photos of staff in their ol' shirt as part of IC Spirit Month throughout the month of June. Photo entry submission details/link to follow shortly. For more information email: staffcouncil@ithaca.edu.
