Cru Culture

You’ve all seen them: those guys and girls wearing oversized fishing shirts, even though they probably don’t own a boat, much less a fishing pole. Pair this trendy top with some name-brand, too-short

shorts, and you have created the “fratty” look that college students across the country choice to sport. Frat life, right?

Well, wrong. Unfortunately, UMHB doesn’t have a fraternity or sorority. Why look like a frat boy without a home? Homeless doesn’t look good on anyone.

A great alternative to this fashion faux pas lies just under our noses. Literally. On the bottom floor of Mabee Student Center, a treasure trove of affordable gems awaits your discovery. And you don’t need a treasure map to find it.

Have you heard of a nifty little thing called Cru Cash? It’s free dollars on your Cru Card, y’all. Use those bad boys in the UMHB bookstore, just down the stairs of Mabee, and nab yourself some great deals.

It’s practically free, especially if you live in a campus apartment. When you moved in, the university gave you $150 on your handy dandy card. Swiper, please swipe it.

So board the Cru style train and stop by the bookstore.

Preferably, you should go in the morning before the line wraps around the hallway and do a little rack raiding.

Look through the hangers of T-shirts, hoodies, shorts and sweats for the best deals. A lot of clothes have been marked down because they sold so fast. It’s a wonderland of Crusader clothing in there.

UMHB isn’t about the frat life. It’s more about comfy cute, and an oversized tee with some stretchy pants or jeans is just what the Cru doctor ordered. Nursing joke.
