9. Get Involved With FACS!

FACS Club of the Week presents: Fashion Design Student Association (FDSA)

What is FDSA? The Fashion Design Student Association (FDSA) is a student run organization for fashion majors and those who share an interest in fashion design. This club not only gives students the opportunity to network and build relationships with one another, but students learn the skills needed to work in the fashion industry. Through events like the Signature Style fashion show, FDSA members will be able to design and exhibit their own work! This club is a great way to be more involved within your major!

Benefits of Becoming a Member! Through FDSA, students are able to gain an abundance of knowledge about the fashion industry. FDSA members will be able to build their resume as they interact with guest speakers and other students with design majors. Students also come in contact with firms seeking interns and full/part-time employees.

Join! This organization is designated to students who major and have an interest in fashion. Dues are currently $20 a year. To become a member, please contact one of the FDSA officers!

Already a Member? Be More Involved! Attending the FDSA meetings is a great way to stay connected with any upcoming events or guest speakers the club may have. FDSA holds club meetings Wednesday in Dawson Hall. FDSA also offers opportunities to display other talents besides fashion. If you have an interest in photography, journalism, and visual display this would be a great club to join! For more information, please contact one of the FDSA officers.
