Here comes the deal part. Use your Instagram account; take a picture of someone wearing the shirt, (of course it can be a selfie) and post it.

Three little words that alone don’t cause a whole lot of emotion, but put them together and the response is usually either panic or elation. Many of the local school districts started their 180 days of reading, writing and arithmetic this week. Local universities such as the University of Akron start the fall semester on Monday, August 26. Whether you’re catching the big yellow bus or the Roo Express, the Museum Store has some inspiring supplies to make your classes a little more fun.
