KSUA helps students get work with ‘Dress to Impress’ event

ASHTABULA — Free business attire, resume writing advice, personalized business cards, and a style consultation are just some of the perks offered to students who attend Kent State University of Ashtabula’s Dress to Impress event Tuesday.

The event will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at KSUA in the Blue and Gold Room of the main building. The Hospitality Management Program students have been collecting gently used professional attire to distribute to students in hopes of preparing them for entering the professional world.

The Dress to Impress program, which offers free interview attire to KSUA students, runs all year. Interested students should contact KSUA Hospitality Management Society advisor, Mandy Ulicney, at (440) 964-4569.

The Meetings Management class is developing the format for the event. KSUA student Rachel Edge said, “I’m thrilled to be involved in the production of Dress to Impress! Attendees will definitely leave with great insight about how to present themselves in the professional world.”

Those interested in helping with the Dress to Impress program may: donate gently worn business attire and/or shoes in any size for men or women; donate appropriate accessories; or become a sponsor.

For more information, contact Ulicney at the number listed above, or at mulicney@kent.edu.
