Sophomore selling potentially scandalous shirts

by The Dartmouth Web Staff

22 Sep 2011

Michael Runger ’14 is cur­rently sell­ing shirts which read “You can take the In­dian out of Dart­mouth, but you can’t take Dart­mouth out of the In­dian” via a pro­mo­tional [Face­book group]. The aptly named “Dart­mouth In­dian play­ing pong shirts” group cur­rently has 167 mem­bers.

Runger seems to be using this provoca­tive shirt cam­paign to spread the word about the com­pany Uni­ver­sity Tees. We’re guess­ing Runger has been hired as Dart­mouth’s rep for the large or­ga­ni­za­tion, which has a pres­ence at uni­ver­si­ties across the coun­try.

“Uni­ver­sity Tees has such a great rep­u­ta­tion,” at least ac­cord­ing to Emma Minx from De­Pauw Uni­ver­sity’s Ki­ne­si­ol­ogy Club, whose Uni­ver­sity Tees tes­ti­mo­nial is posted on their site.

Time will tell whether Minx’s stel­lar ex­pe­ri­ence will be re­peated by stu­dents here at Dart­mouth, but judg­ing from this first big push, we’ve got our doubts.
