Vintage items, new items … as long as they are orange and blue and show your Husky spirit, they are perfect! (Alumni going on Dunham Field for the Gathering of Graduates – no high heels! You will lose major husky points if you poke holes in the new turf! Wedges, flats, and athletic shoes are all good choices.) Be sure to dress for the weather as most events are outdoors. Want to pick-up something new? The University Bookstore will be open 10am-2pm.
