ZonaZoo shirt gets redesign


Tens of thousands of ZonaZoo members will have a new wildcat on their shirts — and more ways to get information about games.

At the end of every year, ZonaZoo holds a contest with student designs, which are then voted on by students, to adorn each year’s shirt. Each member of ZonaZoo, which provides students with seating at various sporting events including football and basketball, gets a free shirt.

This year, ZonaZoo directors got around 15 designs, about on par with how many they usually pull in, said Hillary Davidson, executive director of ZonaZoo.

“It’s a student section run by students and we try to keep it all in-house here,” Davidson said.

Most people are surprised that students create the designs, Davidson said. But this group of student designers, she said, was “awesome and inventive” when working on their new designs.

The competition is a great way for students to show off what they have learned in design classes or springboard toward new businesses, she said.

But the new shirt isn’t the only thing ZonaZoo members will get with their front-row seats to see Nick Foles or Kyle Fogg.

If students text “ZonaZoo” to 37392, they can get alerts about when students will be allowed to line up for games or breaking information about the ‘Zoo.

ZonaZoo is also continuing athletic director Greg Byrne’s professionalism push, to keep those who attend the games acting professionally.

“It’s partly for safely, partly because it’s just a great idea to have it,” Davidson said.
