Claremont Colleges Stereotypes

We were on the campuses over the weekend trying to keep our fingers on the pulse of the Young Generation. As Yogi Berra said, "You can see a lot just by observing". While lots of students were wearing college T's, sweats, and hoodies, we saw these examples of self-referential commentary:

Pomona College: "The Ivy League Called, They Want Their Pretension Back"

Scripps College, the Women's College (and this shirt antedates the recent episode of "Foot-in-Mouth" disease suffered by the Dean of Students): "Its not PMS, We're Just Indignant"

Claremont McKenna College: "Love Fades, but Money Is Forever"

Harvey Mudd College (from the women's viewpoint): "The Odds are Good, but the Goods are Odd"

Pitzer College: "Why Go to College When You Can Go to Pitzer?"

We understand that these shirts may have originated as a fund-raising tool for one of the college clubs. Our rendition may not be exact; we weren't taking notes and are doing it from memory. We would welcome corrections and additions of any memorable phrases we may have missed. We'll print those that are printable.
