Welcome to the inaugural Maroon Shirt campaign, the official 2017 members-only shirt from the Alumni Association for alumni, fans and friends of the University of Minnesota. The Maroon Shirt is a limited-edition, unique design that you can only get by being a member of the Alumni Association. Proceeds from the shirt are used to fulfill the UMAA’s mission - connecting alumni, supporting students, and strengthening the University community.
What do all Gophers have in common?
School pride, and great style!
In order to continue serving you, our members, we wanted to create something special to reward your dedication to your university. Designs from the Maroon Shirt campaign are limited edition (you can only get them the year they come out for a limited time), and are exclusive to members of the Alumni Association. Show your school pride by purchasing the inaugural Maroon Shirt for your maroon and gold collection.
Q. HOW DO I GET THE SHIRT?
Q. MY MEMBERSHIP EXPIRED. HOW DO I GET A SHIRT?
A. If you have already been a member of the Alumni Association, simply renew your membership and then purchase the shirt separately via the link above.
Q. WHERE DID THE DESIGN COME FROM?
A. Bringing together generations of Gophers, the inaugural Maroon Shirt design for 2017 includes imagery from the University’s past and present. Three generations of Goldy usher in buildings and traditions from the East and West Banks, along with St. Paul campus. Whether you traveled campus on the Washington Avenue bridge or the Light Rail, we are all one University - one Gopher family.
Q. CAN I ORDER MORE THAN ONE SHIRT?
A. Absolutely! For those joining for the first time, a single shirt is included with sign up. Purchase additional shirts here.
Q. HOW DO I CHOOSE MY SIZE?
A. If you join as a member on the web, a confirmation email will be sent to you with a link to select your shirt size. If you join or order any shirts via a print campaign, the print piece you send back will have your shirt size(s) included.
Q. CAN I ORDER A SHIRT AFTER OCTOBER 21, 2017?
A. Maybe - but probably not. Once these shirts are gone, the design is retired. But keep an eye out for the 2018 Maroon Shirt design to be released this spring.
Q. I'M A STUDENT. CAN I GET A SHIRT?
A. Absolutely! Simply join as a “Student Member” of the Alumni Association between August 28 and October 21, and we’ll send you a shirt for signing up. If you are already a member of the Association - simply purchase a shirt for $20 like any other member.
