Ugly Holiday Sweater Contest: There’s Nothing Subtle about Them

Which is why we love them

We asked, you answered. We put the word out last week that we were launching our first-ever ugly holiday sweater photo contest. We heard from students, faculty, staff, and alums—all eager to model their holiday attire.

They arrived with sweaters bearing bows, ornaments, ribbons, cats with antlers, and even Julian Edelman. Please take a look—and hope that nothing like them has been gift-wrapped with your name on it.

Be sure to check back here at 2 p.m. when we announce the top three ugliest holiday sweater winners. (Each will receive a prize, and no, it’s not another holiday sweater.) Our thanks to all the elves, grinches, and snowpersons brave enough to show up to be photoed.

    You can’t see the sweaters due to the captions.

    Victor Kholod’s (CAS’16) sweater is my choice for winner. That sweater really is ugly.
    Helen Houghton’s (CAS’20) sweater by far is my favorite though.

    The captions obscure everything.
