Fear not. The studying student on the left isn't being threatened by the blob. Nor is it a Trojan prank. That blood-colored monster squatting outside the James West Alumni Center is just a tumbled heap of T-shirts turned in for the Student Alumni Association's third annual "T-shirt exchange" during Blue and Gold Week. Students donate any piece of red clothing and receive a free T-shirt fondly nicknamed the "I Heart UCLA" shirts. The clothing is donated to Goodwill after the week's festivities, and this year, approximately 2,700 shirts were distributed and 35 large boxes of red clothing were collected.
