GLASSBORO, N.J. -

Rowan University President Ali Houshmand is helping students get the professional clothes they need to succeed.

Houshmand announced he is launching a 100-Day Challenge to fill the university’s Suit Our Students Career Closet with professional attire students can wear when they head off for their all-important job or internship interviews.

Beginning on Friday, November 30th, through March 10th, the 100-Day Challenge aims to stock the clothing closet with 300 gently-worn suits and dresses to help students dress for success.

Officials say students recognize the need to dress professional, however many just can't afford the cost of professional attire.

Donations can be dropped off at the Office of the Dean of Students in Savitz Hall on Rowan's main campus, the Dean’s Office at the Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, the Dean’s Office at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University in Camden, and the main office of the Academic Building at Rowan’s Camden Campus.
