Dress for success for less

dress for success event

It was a first, but it won’t be the last! Augustana’s CORE partnered with J.C. Penney for a Suit-Up event. Nearly 250 students and 35 faculty/staff took advantage of free transportation and a 40% discount on all career dress apparel and shoes. More than half of the students used a $50 voucher toward their purchase. “We simply want to make career apparel accessible and affordable to all,” said Laura Kestner-Ricketts, executive director of career and professional development. “We’re so pleased with how many students took advantage of this.”
