BGSU Clothing: 3 Timeless Mementos for Proud Graduates

by Molly Joyce

Here at Jupmode, we’re extra proud of our Bowling Green State University (BGSU) apparel. We’re intimately connected to BGSU and it’s our honor to serve the school’s students and their families.

We specialize in apparel for people who live in or simply love the American Midwest, specifically Ohio.

Although we call Northwest Ohio home, we also have special collections for Michigan, the Great Lakes region, and beyond. .

We’ve got an entire Bowling Green collection with unique designs that you won’t find anywhere else. Better yet, we’ve got several Bowling Green grads on our team to design items that perfectly capture the school’s spirit and colors.


If there’s a recent or soon-to-be BGSU grad in your circle, it’s time to level up their school spirit apparel collection. High-quality school-themed apparel is the perfect gift for a happy graduate.

Or, shop for yourself! You’re part of the BGSU family, too.

Let’s take a look at some of the best Bowling Green swag for you and your favorite grad, including:

  • BGSU t-shirts
  • BGSU sweatshirts and hoodies
  • BGSU sweatpants

1 - Bowling Green State University T-Shirts

What do you look for in a t-shirt?

We like ours soft, stylish and fitted.

To get the coziest, best-fitting shirt, you’ve got to use the right materials.

Items like the Vintage Falcon T-shirt (pictured above) are made with the following tri-blend material:

  • Polyester
  • Cotton
  • Rayon

Each component brings advantages to the mix.

Material Percent Used in Tri-Blend Shirts Value Added
Polyester 50 Anti-shrink, anti-wrinkle
Cotton 25 Softness, durability
Rayon 25 Lightness, stretch, breathability

Cotton is the most traditional material for garment design. It’s soft, durable, and breathable. However, cotton actually works best in tandem with other materials.

In a tri-blend shirt, polyester adds anti-shrink and anti-wrinkle properties, providing a comfortable amount of stretchiness without compromising style. Finally, rayon adds a silky smooth feel.

The tri-blend combo of these three materials makes shirts comfy, durable, and stylish—fitted shirts that are perfectly soft, with just the right amount of stretchiness.


Our Bowling Green t-shirts are officially licensed by the university and built to last.

2 - Bowling Green State University Sweatshirts

Ohio offers lots of sweatshirt weather. When it’s time to warm up with long sleeves, the best sweatshirts are super cozy and oh-so-soft. So, we opt for the ultimate softness with 100% cotton and cotton-polyester blends.

”Nobody compliments a crew neck sweater. NOT THIS ONE… My friends now all have the same one!”

For the most classy look that a sweatshirt can offer, go with an embroidered design (see above). Or, check out one of these comfy and stylish options:

3 - Bowling Green Falcons Tie-Dye Sweatpants

Who says sweatpants have to be boring? Pass on the plain gray options and go for a brilliant pair of dark blue Bowling Green tie-dye sweatpants. 

”So comfy and cute. I love this sweatshirt and the sweatpants. They’re very cozy and look great!”
— Jamie C., ★★★★★ Verified Jupmode Buyer

These pants have every possible design element for hitting that peak comfort level that only sweatpants can provide. They have an elastic waistband with a flat drawcord, ribbed ankle cuffs, and rear and side pockets.

The tie-dye design features multiple shades of blue. It creates a groovy print that perfectly captures the college vibe—ultra casual yet super stylish.

While the tie-dye design earns you some fashion points, the feel of these sweatpants is all about comfort. The unisex, relaxed fit is loose and cozy without being baggy, creating a less-structured silhouette.

To complete the outfit, pair your tie-dye sweatpants with this matching BGSU tie-dye sweatshirt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Jupmode part of Bowling Green State University?

”Great store… Bought multiple gifts for my wife from here as we no longer live in the Midwest but she appreciates the celebration.”
— Devin C., ★★★★★ Verified Jupmode Buyer

Does Jupmode apparel shrink in the wash?

Most of our shirts are made with this tri-blend: polyester, cotton, and rayon. This blend doesn’t typically shrink much, if at all.

We also use a 50/50 cotton and polyester blend for some garments. This blend is also generally shrink-proof.

Additionally, Jupmode sweatshirts and sweatpants are pre-shrunk. This means post-purchase shrinkage potential is minimal, but some shrinking may occur if you dry your cotton or fleece garments with high heat. So, we recommend hang-drying cotton and fleece garments or tumble drying them with low heat.

Does Jupmode take custom apparel orders?

We offer custom screen printing and embroidery. In fact, a large portion of our business involves custom design and decoration for local schools, businesses, non-profit groups, and special events.
