Timing is everything when it comes to ESU’s 2022 Homecoming shirt design.

“When we realized that our Homecoming fell on the same day that Emporia would celebrate Dia de los Muertos, we knew we wanted to collaborate with Hispanics of Today and Tomorrow on our T-shirt designs,” explained Hailey Kisner, vice president of ESU’s Associated Student Government and a member of the student Homecoming committee.

The result is a T-shirt that incorporates Emporia State’s Stingers Up design with the traditional colors and style of Dia de los Muertos artwork.

Orders for T-shirts can be made online and will be taken through Oct. 4 to ensure delivery in time for both celebrations on Saturday, Oct. 29. All T-shirts are black and are available in both long- or short-sleeve options. Prices range from $15 to $18 depending on the options (size and sleeve length).

T-shirts also may be ordered in person Sept. 26 through 30 in the Memorial Union on the Emporia State campus. ESU’s Associated Student Government have a table for orders on Main Street of the Union between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day.

Shirts can be picked up on campus during Homecoming week, Oct. 24 through 29. The ESU Alumni Association will ship shirts if they are ordered that way. Shipping will begin by Oct. 28.
