If you are an advisor to a group or a member of an organization or department that plans to order any Fredonia items such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps, mugs, athletic gear or other pieces of memorabilia, please share this trademarks and licensing information with all of the members of your organization.

Your cooperation in adhering to university trademarks and licensing procedures is greatly appreciated.
