What some St. Olaf students think of Carleton College

They ain't sayin' ... just sayin'.

Nah, this isn’t official St. Olaf gear.

Found one of these after talking to some students at St. Olaf College last week. They said some Ole student started selling them a while back, and that campus administration really frowned on them. (I’ve got a call in to officials there.)

They also said Carleton has its own shirt for St. Olaf:

Northfield Community College

(Heh! Johnnies and Tommies might take note.)

Update: St. Olaf spokesman David Gonnerman called the shirts “juvenile and disrespectful,” but said he didn’t believe they’d been banned.

    You keep it classy, St Olaf.

    You didn’t do Carleton’s response t-shirt much justice.  Notice Olaf’s seal on the front, and the words “because a G.E.D. just ain’t what it used to be” on the back.  It’s important to note that the inspiration for the “Carleton Sucks” t-shirt came from actual shirts Carleton sells that read “Cancer Sucks”–as a fundraiser for cancer research.

      I was wondering what those looked like. I’m afraid I couldn’t find any of those shirts during my day at St. Olaf, so all I could do is relate what I’d heard. Your images help. Thanks.
