Chore coat in off-white cotton twill with stenciled decoration.

The design depicts the Nassau Inn (known to students as “The Nass”) being moved from Nassau Street to Palmer Square in a wheel barrow made of a diploma, a deflated football and a dumbbell representing the dumbest class. The chevron in the shield forms the “A” in “NASS.” The class numerals make up the figure. The design also incorporates a milk bottle, alluding to President Harold Dodds’s efforts to reduce beer drinking at football games.
