Sometimes you can email colleges and say that you love their school and ask if they can send you any gear for it. Some schools might send t-shirts, but you'll probably get stickers or nothing from most of them. Some schools give out free t-shirts if you tour their campus or go to a special event (ex. Michigan State's Green and White Days), and some send t-shirts to their admitted students as part of their acceptance package or let admitted students request to be sent a free shirt (UMich did that this year). You'll probably have the best luck just buying a shirt from the university bookstore, they usually aren't more than $20 and are often good quality brands like Nike or Champion.
