How much does a gig like this pay?
My nephew will be a journalism major next year and given the current economy a part time job may be necessary.

Why No Ohio State University?

Remember Sol, apparently red is really hard to get consistency in color and there is a lot of loss. Also, red glass is more expensive to make. So, Ohio State colors make the items cost prohibitive. I'm sure they'd make one custom for you.

(Hint, hint if your mom is reading this blog).

We recently added Alabama and Florida State. Ohio turned us down, we can reapply in 2009. Also, we are applying for Stanford and Berkeley. Any other Ivys you would like please post a list!

Have any of the California schools agreed? I went to Cal State Nowhere (Northridge), which would mean lovely tangerine items. USC might be tough - unless Blenko wants to develop a burgundy color - and UCLA would be very easy in blue.

West Virginia State
and West Virginia Tech
are both Blue and Gold and would be easy
Virginia Tech is colors are easy for blenko also.
