College Sweatshirts - show your school
When discussing college
sweatshirts, most people would understand that we are talking about
that have college or university names or logos. The garments are generally
printed, embroidered, or embellished in some manner to display school spirit.
Before we start discussing this
type of shirt, let’s first figure out the
difference between a school, college or university?
In the United States, the word
"school" describes any place where people learn. A college, university,
institute, and secondary program are all technically schools. A four-year
college or university offers a bachelor's degree. Programs that offer these
degrees are called "undergraduate" schools. A "university" is a group of
schools for studies after secondary school. At least one of these schools is a
college where students receive a bachelor's degree. A student can earn a
bachelor's degree at either a college or a university. If the student is
super clever, after getting an undergraduate degree they can move on to a gain a
masters in fashion if they so choose.
Now that we know that colleges
and universities are very similar, it’s time for us to point out that
we really don’t care that they are different.
Truth be told, we couldn’t care less what type of school someone has attended or
plans to attend. On this page we will refer to college sweatshirts,
university sweatshirts, and other school sweatshirts as if all of these various
schools are the exact same. The style of
sweatshirts are basically the same regardless
of the type of school under discussion. Although not all sweatshirts are
created equal, it is fair to say that the various styles that are in existence
would be equally popular at high school, college, or at a university. The
primary distinguishing difference would be the actual printing or other sorts of
embellishment on the garment.
Most university sweatshirts are
worn to show off the name of the school that a student has attended. They
are equally important to proud parents that wish to make sure the world know
that their child has attended school. For example, we at Apparel Search
often wear or Yale
sweatshirts to show how proud we are of our children.
In regard to most school sweatshirts, the most important
aspect is the words or logos that decorate the front, back, hood, or sleeves of
the garment. The colors are generally based on the colors that represent
the school. Similar to the sports team jerseys, the color of the students
sweatshirts typically (but not always) represents the school colors.
These types of sweatshirts are abundant on school
campuses around the country. Sweatshirts, jeans, and sneakers are pretty
much in every young adults wardrobe on campus.
Are sorority sweatshirts and fraternity sweatshirts
considered college sweatshirts?
Although we would like to say
yes, we think that the technical answer is no. We have decided that
college sweatshirts are sweatshirts that have
college or university names or logo decorated
on the garment. Greek letters represent an important college experience,
but do not necessarily represent the school. However, if the sweatshirt
has both the Greek letters and the school name or logo, then it would
We understand the fact that sorority shirts and
fraternity clothing is a big part of college life for many students.
Wearing the letters to represent your group of friends is an important aspect of
college. Therefore, we suggest that if you are planning to be in a
sorority at a university you work very hard so you can afford to have “both" a
sorority sweatshirt and a college sweatshirt.
Styles of university sweatshirts:
Any style of sweatshirt can be
turned into a university sweatshirt at a
local print shop. It only takes a blank top and a textile printer
(silk screen or digital printer). This type of clothing can be hooded, zip
front, or pull overs. Generally they are made in jersey fabric and long
sleeve. The tops can be 100% cotton, 100% Polyester, blends of the two
fibers, or other types of textile fibers entirely. You name the sweatshirt
type, they have been printed with a school name or log at some point.
