Give input about professional Coug wear by Sept. 14

blazerPULLMAN, Wash. – College-branded professional apparel for women will be designed in a Washington State University class this semester for manufacturing and purchase, and students are looking for input before they begin.

Women age 30 and up who are interested in professional collegiate spirit apparel are asked to take an online survey at by Wednesday, Sept. 14. It should take less than 10 minutes, said Deborah Christel, assistant professor in the WSU Department of Apparel Merchandising, Design & Textiles who teaches the class.

“Several of us have noticed that there is a minimal amount of clothes for women over 30 to wear outside of tailgating and game day attire,” she said, adding that the effort to design and market professional clothing is a partnership with the WSU President’s Office and, in particular, with First Lady Noel Schulz.
