Campus Chic: The Ugly Sweater Edition

By | Jacky Eubanks

 

Senior Megan Hazelton. Jacky Eubanks | Collegian

Tell us about your sweater.

Megan Hazelton: “I was up visiting my grandparents in northern Minnesota, and we went to a little thrift store, and the wife of the owner made these sweaters by sewing random things that had come into the store onto them. It was just so ugly and obnoxious, and I loved it!”

Natalie Stepanenko: “You can always use an ugly sweater.”

Erin Hunt: “It’s, like, hip now.”

So, what’s the appeal?

Erin: “They’re funny…Might as well make a joke out of it.”

Natalie: “It’s the holiday spirit. It’s fun to celebrate with ugly sweaters…I’ve been racking up a collection.”
