    ‘I agree’ mystery solved tonight

    You’ve probably seen the signs. You may have seen the chalk graffiti on the sidewalks last week. This morning you’ll see the T-shirts. But you’re lucky if you know much more than that.

    Banners and flyers around campus proclaiming “”I agree with Geoffrey”” and “”I agree with David”” have esoterically haunted major thoroughfares on campus for the past week.

    “”Some people think it’s a religious thing, other people have said it’s a political thing because of the red and blue colors, but we made it purposely vague to attract more people,”” said Geoffrey Schultz, whose name adorned the blue banner outside of the Science-Engineering Library.

    “”All I’m gonna say is that it’s an event on the Mall (tonight) at 7 p.m. and there will be free pizza,”” Schultz said.

    David Kline, a creative writing senior, said he might go check it out, although he believes it sounds like a promotion “”to try to get you to buy something.””

    Nick Wyer, an economics senior, said the two students would have a better chance of getting people to attend the mysterious event if they said what it was about.

    Schultz will be speaking at the 20- to 30-minute-long event along with ASUA Vice President David Reece, the other “”I agree with”” student.

    “”The event is mainly something that David and myself wanted to do,”” said Schultz, who added that he has received support from several Christian groups on campus, including Campus Crusade for Christ and the Baptist Collegiate Ministry.

    People will be walking around campus today with T-shirts bearing the phrases as a final part of the event’s marketing campaign, said Schultz.

    The phrases first began to appear last week, starting with the banners, which cost $80 apiece, and chalk advertising.

    Geoffrey said they stopped the chalking after the first night because he heard that other groups had gotten in trouble for that in the past.

    “”We figured it was OK because it could just wash off, but we didn’t want to make a bad impression or break the law, so we stopped when we heard it might be wrong,”” said Schultz.
