Another year, another successful Suit Up!

August 28, 2019

Sunday night, we held another successful Suit Up event.  About 600 students attended, and 70 of those received scholarships.  One recipient said, "I want to thank you for your generous donation.  Coming from a family who did not have the resources to purchase new clothes, I cannot tell you how much this means to me.  I am taking classes in leadership and hope to inspire others:  with hard work and focus, they too can be more than their history."

 

Thank you for your support of students at the University of Oklahoma.

Because of you, we met our goal!

June 19, 2019

Thanks to you, our campaign to raise $5,000 in 30 days was a success! Thank you for supporting OU Suit Up. Many of you have donated to OU Suit Up every year. Your loyalty to this cause and in helping our students obtain professional attire means so much to us and the students. 

 

We would love for you to see the event in action. Volunteers are needed to help check in students and help them make clothing selections. If you are intersted in volunteering for OU Suit Up on Sunday, August 25, please let us know.

10 Days Left and 85% to goal

The OU Suit Up scholarship selection committee is hard at work, reviewing applications. As of today, we are able to award about 28 student scholarships for professional attire. Thank you for supporting OU Suit Up!  Over 300 students have applied for OU Suit Up scholarships. With 10 days remaining in our Thousands Strong campaign, please continue to share with your networks so that we can help more students afford the attire they need to present themselves professionally for internships and full-time jobs.
