In other news from the Turlock campus of Stan State, officials noted that the ‘Warrior Wardrobe’ project is now providing some free career clothing for students.
The Warrior Wardrobe accepts gently-used business wear and other donations to provide professional attire to students who need to look polished for interviews, job fairs or presentations.
And, Stanislaus State has entered into an agreement through the Maddy Institute to join with Fresno State, Cal State Bakersfield and the University of California, Merced in developing a greater understanding of public policy and to support the development of student skills in the area of public service.
