So maybe you can't actually save the world with a custom-designed shirt, but the folks at Augustana College featured in this post sure can! I don’t know about you all, but to me it seems like almost every day there’s a new burglary, homicide, attack, etc. recounted on the news with the kind of alarming frequency that makes you want to hide in your room and never come out, or do like the ostriches do: bury your head in the sand and pretend they don’t see you. Bingo, problem solved! (Er, not…). However, you all at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois have developed a unique solution to navigate around this problem. You selected several of your most gangster undergrads, decked ‘em out in cool custom-designed tees like the one below, and started Augustana College Escort Services: ACES! (read: resident bad asses). ACES are available to escort students around campus to their dorm rooms to ensure students travel safely into the wee hours. 

How cool is that? I can’t believe I’m saying this right now, but I almost feel like a custom tee isn’t enough (and that’s saying a LOT from someone whose life revolves around custom shirts. I do have friends, I promise. Kind of). I could almost imagine a bunch of you decked out in Ghost Buster-esque crime fighting get-ups or like, firefighter suits. Saving the world, one safely escorted wayward nymph at a time. Bravo! Although according to Boy Meets World, “Life’s tough, get a helmet,” thankfully some of y’all out in the world are making it a little less tough. What a great idea, Augustana College! Hopefully other premiere universities will take similar measures to ensure campus safety. Thanks!
