• UO Happenings: Connor Franta Wraps Up Common Culture Meet And Greet Tour at Mall of America

    After three successful meet-and-greets with Connor Franta, the entrepreneur and founder of Common Culture wrapped his mini-tour in his home state of Minnesota at the Mall of America. The tour, which began in Los Angeles and continued in Austin and New York, celebrated the launch of Connor's Common Culture + Urban Outfitters collaboration. Now online and in select stores (which you can find here) the five-product line includes a tee, crewneck, hoodie, and hats with all proceeds benefitting GLSEN, a nonprofit ensuring safe and affirming school environments for LGBTQ students. To show his appreciation, the collaboration's spearhead, Connor joined us at UO Mall of America in Minnesota for a meet-and-greet with fans. Re-live the excitement, hugs and cutest gifting moments here.

    The fourth time's the charm! By now you knew the drill: Be one of the first 200 to purchase Common Culture merch for entry to the meet-and-greet later that day, so we weren't surprised to see the massive line outside of the store. 

    After a quick vlog session, it was down to business, which included hugs, gifts and selfies. And business was good. 

    Common Culture hats were big hits in Minnesota. 

    Handmade notebooks, cards and other gifts were bestowed upon Connor from generous and creative fans.

    Fans were also treated to a copy of the Common Culture musical compilation. 

    And that's a wrap! Thanks to all in Minnesota, New York City, Austin and Los Angeles who braved the rain, cold and crowds to take part in the Common Culture + Urban Outfitters collaboration and support of GLSEN.
