150th anniversary polo shirts available free to faculty, staff

What better time to show your school colors than the 150th anniversary of the founding of the school?

What? You don’t have any school colors? Not to worry — the University will be handing out shirts later this month and in early September to all benefits-eligible faculty and staff members in recognition of the Sesquicen-tennial celebration.

The shirts are a polo-style, WUSTL red and have the Sesquicentennial logo stitched in green on the left chest. The shirts come in sizes small through triple-extra large.

“The Sesquicentennial celebration opening event is the 150th Washington University Birthday Party on Sept. 14,” said Ann Prenatt, vice chancellor for human resources. “We are looking forward to getting these shirts in the hands of our faculty and staff members so they can be worn on this day, and throughout the coming year.”

Faculty and staff on the Hilltop Campus can pick their shirts up in Brookings Hall, Room 300, and those on the Medical Campus can get their shirts on the second floor of the Eric P. Newman Education Center at the following times:

• Aug. 26, 7 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

• Aug. 27, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

• Aug. 28, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

West Campus staff can pick up their shirts in Room 2128, the Multi-purpose Room, on:

• Sept. 3, 7 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

• Sept. 4, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

However, regardless of where you work, you may pick up a shirt at any of the listed locations.

You must present a University identification card to get a shirt. The Office of Human Resources has established a database of all eligible faculty and staff to track distribution.
