It’s a longstanding tradition to wear maroon on Fridays and now, the SIU Bookstore, located in the Student Center, has launched sales of #SpiritFriday gear to encourage school spirit and help support the Saluki Food Pantry

MAROON-FRIDAY-SHIRT-01-sm.png“On Fridays We Wear Maroon” T-shirts are available for purchase at the bookstore or online at The SIU Student Center and University Bookstore are partnering so that 20% of the purchase price will go to the food pantry to help food insecure SIU students.  The shirts feature a Saluki and on the back, “Go Southern.” The food pantry, which serves hundreds of students every semester, is located on the lower level of the Student Center and operates from 8-11 a.m. on Wednesday and 1-4 p.m. on Fridays.
