We know you have a big decision to make. Over the next few weeks, members of the Holy Cross community will share their thoughts on what makes Holy Cross so special.
What does the College of the Holy Cross have in common with famous designers like Oscar de la Renta, Nanette Lepore, Vivenne Tam, Monique Lhuillier, and Carolina Herrera? The color purple.
Having attended Holy Cross for four fabulous years I have acquired more purple than most people can fathom: I love my purple Holy Cross t-shirt that I wore to my first Holy Cross football game. I love my purple polka-dotted belt that I wore for two amazing summers as a Gateways Orientation Leader. I love my purple headband that I sported at every home basketball game. I love my purple shorts that I wore when I saw Guster in concert during Spring Weekend of my sophomore year. I love my purple shoulder-bag that lugged class books to Dinand library numerous times a week. I love my purple tights that I put on before going to Holy Cross’ on-campus pub my senior year. I love my purple “Holy Cross 2008” banner that now hangs proudly in my office.
Like all Holy Cross Crusaders, I love purple, I have a lot of it, and I am ready for this spring fashion statement. At Holy Cross we are clearly ahead of the fashion curve. We have been wearing purple for ages, and we’ve always made purple look good.
