UIS presents Project Success: Dress to Impress

WHAT: The University of Illinois Springfield will host “Project Success: Dress to Impress” as part of the annual Springfest celebration on campus. Project Success is a runway fashion show that displays how to dress for business casual and business professional.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 14, 2010 from 9:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

WHERE: Student Life Building (SLB) Gymnasium on the UIS campus

DETAILS: Through fun and fashion, the audience will get a sense of how to dress for professional interaction and career daily wear, while learning which kinds of fashion flops to avoid.

UIS students have been invited to form teams and compete by showing their best and worst examples of business attire. The runway show will be judged by the audience and a panel of judges. Nina Wright from Western and Southern Financial Group and Sharon Thornton Knop, a UIS alumnus, from State Farm will return as this year’s judges and be joined by a member of the Capitol Radio Group. Tim Burns from Prudential, an employer partner with the UIS Career Development Center, will act as emcee for the evening. The winning team will be awarded a prize of $600.

Project Success is sponsored by UIS Career Development Center, UIS Office of Alumni Relations, and Student Government Association. It will be available via live Webcast for online students and those who are unable to attend.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Rachel Hasenyager or Gale Kilbury at 217/206-6508. A complete list of Springfest events is available at
