The Donut Shirts Are In

Posted on Friday, February 19th, 2016 by Austin Gerth


A couple days ago a package I’ve been waiting a while for finally arrived in my mail. Said package was a t-shirt, rolled up and rubber banded, with a post-it note fixed on top with my mailbox number and name penned on. This wasn’t just any t shirt: it was my official Cobber Sandy’s Donut Club t shirt. I’ve been a supporter of the Donut Club since its inception, following its Facebook and Twitter pages within a day or two of their creation; I even made the trek to its namesake donut shop in downtown Fargo one frigid Friday morning last month for one of the club’s meetings (there’ve only been two meetings so far–it’s pretty low-key, which is probably a good thing for a club built around eating donuts).

The Donut Club was co-founded by my fellow COBBlogger Kelsey Rausch, and it deserves to be supported. Some students tend to only be involved with the kinds of things that will “look good on a resume,” but the Donut Club is an important reminder that not everything is about money or about getting ahead in life. Sometimes it’s best just to sit back, smell the coffee, and eat a donut. Plus, you might get a cool t shirt out of the deal too.

Hello everyone! I’m Austin Gerth, class of 2016, from scenic Princeton, Minnesota. My hobbies include listening to and playing music, reading, watching movies, and thinking about things. I’m majoring in Writing. After college, I hope to be either some sort of writer or some sort of homeless (or both). I chose to come to Concordia mostly for the food, though it has a lot of other good qualities as well. Since coming to Concordia I’ve been to dorm room eggnog parties and late-night viral video productions; I’ve listened to a lot of Justin Timberlake and blindly taken a yoga class with no prior experience; I’ve participated in a heroically unproductive religion study group and fallen asleep in the campus center. On top of these things, I’ve also received a superlative education. If you like wind and pizza, you’ll like Fargo-Moorhead, and if you like corn-oriented humor, semi-gourmet cafeteria food, or late-night intellectual behavior, you’ll like Concordia. If you like all of the above, you’re probably already here and we’re probably already friends.
