Majority of the senior class has decided and committed to their college of their dreams. With committing to their college comes with a lot of college gear. Many students are purchasing clothing such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, long sleeves, sweatpants, socks, leggings, shorts, and more. The most popular fashion trend this year is a furry pullover. Other common gear includes water bottles, lanyards, ID holders that attach to the back of your phone case, phone cases, bumper stickers, and more.
