Caleb supports Dawgs Suit Up, a partnership between UGA’s Career Center and JCPenney, which allows students to purchase professional attire at a steep discount. At the Fall 2017 event, 1,300 students were able to purchase a full ensemble – a suit, shirt, belt and shoes – for less than $200.
Many students applied for financial help to attend the event and purchase their first professional outfit. With the support of donors like Caleb, the Career Center awarded 310 scholarships, allowing recipients to receive their suits free of charge.
“I can only imagine being a student and not feeling confident because you can’t afford the proper clothing to wear to go to an interview,” Caleb said. “The proper attire can give you that extra bit of confidence.”
