“Making a good first impression is very important. Many students do not have the money to purchase the appropriate business attire required for interviewing; therefore, in collaboration with our student advisory board, we began the ‘Suited for Success’ closet. We are seeking men’s and women’s business attire as well as shoes. It is a win-win for everyone,” says Dr. Margaret Kilcoyne. Dr. Kilcoyne is the Dean of the College of Business and Technology at Northwestern State University.
“The majority of students live on a very small income. I know several of my peers who are very grateful for the ‘Suited for Success’ closet, because it is the only way they could get the clothes they need for a presentation or an interview,” says Director of Membership Experience Maggie Harris. Harris is a graduating senior at the School of Business.
