When the weather is cold and rainy in Columbia, students can’t help but smile when they see their Columbia sports hats hanging from their dorms’ ceiling.
For many, the school’s athletic uniforms are a constant reminder of the great college basketball program it once had.
But now, Columbia is in the process of getting rid of its iconic football and baseball hats.
The school said Wednesday that it will end the hats and will sell the remaining uniforms.
The university has already begun using donated jerseys from other teams.
The change comes after a recent court decision that said the university had violated the Fair Housing Act by discriminating against black students who had purchased Columbia basketball uniforms.
For more than 20 years, Columbia students have been able to buy Columbia-branded shirts in the Columbia Store, a clothing shop located in the school bookstore.
The store is one of the only remaining black-owned stores in the United States.
As a result, many students are getting frustrated at Columbia.
Many of the black students that are trying to get into the school are not as successful as those that bought Columbia basketball shirts.
The students are often frustrated because they are not able to get Columbia shirts that match their school colors, said student Daniel Babbitt, a senior.
“For a lot of us, this is our college.
It’s our home.
And we know that Columbia is not where we want to be, so we’re trying to do whatever we can to make sure we can make the best out of it,” he said.
The Columbia Store is not the only place that Columbia students are shopping.
The department store department stores, which also sell Columbia-brand shirts, are also being phased out.
According to Columbia spokesperson Michael McDaniel, Columbia also has an endowment fund, which pays for scholarships for students who choose to enroll in other institutions.
But the endowment is being depleted.
Columbia announced that it would end its athletic sponsorship of Columbia basketball in May, according to a news release.
In a statement to the News and Observer, Columbia said it “does not believe that the football and basketball program is a priority at this time.”
Columbia officials did not return a call seeking comment on Wednesday.
