The Stride gum promotional team spread the word about their “ridiculously long-lasting gum” with a T-shirt swap at Lowry Mall at MU. Students traded in their old T-shirts for either new Stride T-shirts or “vintage” shirts from across the country. For the past five weeks, the Stride gum team has been touring the country to collect T-shirts from various colleges to swap with students at other college campuses, thus answering students’ long-lasting question about what to do with all the free T-shirts that are given to college students.
