The Most Purchased Posters At The HUB Poster Sale

At the beginning of each semester, the HUB hosts a poster sale for students to decorate their dorms and apartments with their favorite bands, tv shows, and artwork. This week, we asked the vendors about the most popular posters that students bought during the sale, (which surprisingly doesn’t include Bob Marley or Audrey Hepburn).

Here you have it, the top 10 most sold posters of the Spring 2016 semester poster sale:

After winning numerous Billboard, Grammy, and People’s Choice awards this year alone, this one doesn’t come as a surprise. Swift’s ever-growing popularity earns her a spot to stay in the top 10 most sold posters.
