URegina Students’ Union provides students with free business attire

October 2, 2017

The University of Regina Students’ Union has launched a new program called URSU Threads that will provide students with free business attire for job interviews, work terms, or presentations. “In the current day and age, there are so many cuts to student funding, so if someone doesn't have a suit and they are a full-time student, the last thing on their mind is to spend $200 or $300 on a suit jacket,” said Haris Khan, URSU's vice-president of external affairs. “So this program that we are starting is kind of helping them out and to also make them look professional. Once you look professional, you definitely stand above the crowd.” The program has partnered with Dress for Success Regina, which provides professional attire to women, and has received donations of gently used suits from Moores Clothing. CBC
