PITTSBURG, KS.--- A "Trade Your T" event was held on the oval of Pittsburg State University. Gus the Gorilla was on hand to take in old t-shirts from other universities. In exchange for the old shirts, the students would get a new PSU t-shirt. Organizers gave away 250 shirts and they say it's a fun way to advertise the university.
"Really trying to get students excited. They're on campus and this is the second week of school. We're just trying to get that excitement going and giving them a Pitt State shirt and having more Pitt State shirts on campus, and less of other colleges," said Jenny Hellwig, PSU Special Projects.
Another t-shirt exchange will be held in the spring.
