THE HISTORY OF SUIT-A-BULL
Before moving to its current location, Suit-A-Bull operated out of a variety of mobile locations. In the summer of 2015, the service moved into a brand-new, permanent facility just down the hall from Career Services. Since then, Suit-A-Bull has been permanently located on the second floor of the Student Services Building (SVC-2060). In its first full year of operation within this space, Suit-A-Bull provided assistance to more than 700 students.
Local professionals, faculty, and staff have generously donated a closet full of apparel and accessories in order to provide students with the proper attire for career fairs and job interviews. In the fall of 2015, the Suit-A-Bull USF Deans and Vice Presidents Challenge was held. The Challenge allowed academic and administrative units of the university to compete against one another by awarding points for clothing items collected during the challenge period. The winner of this challenge was the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences.
In the summer of 2016, the Suit-A-Bull Corporate Challenge was held and Enterprise Holdings was the winner of the challenge event! Also participating were Citi (finishing in second place) and Northwestern Mutual (finishing in third place).
