LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 23, 2021) — In partnership with Macy’s, the University of Kentucky's Stuckert Career Center is offering the Virtual Spring 2021 Wildcat Style event.

All UK students, alumni, employees, and parents and families are welcome to attend the event during the week of Friday, April 23, through Sunday, May 2, 2021. 

UK community members and families will have the opportunity to receive up to 30% off on professional attire (ie. suits, shoes, briefcases/ purses, accessories, and much more) and 15% off on grooming/beauty products for both men and women of select Macy's merchandise. 

Attendees will have the option to shop virtually or may visit Macy's in the Fayette Mall to utilize the Wildcat Style discount code. 

“We understand that building a professional wardrobe can be expensive and somewhat difficult to manage on a student or a household budget,” said Ray Clere, director of the Stuckert Career Center. “The Wildcat Style event is intended to provide an opportunity for students, alumni, employees, and their families to find professional attire and accessories at a discounted cost.”

The quick registration forms will help the Stuckert Career Center distribute the coupon and track event attendance. Once registered, individuals will receive an email on April 23, 2021, or shortly after their registration date, with event details and the UK Wildcat Style discount code. 

Additionally, thanks to the generous support from the UK Student Government Association, a limited number of individual financial grants will be made available for students to support participation in the Wildcat Style event. UK students who register for the Wildcat Style event will receive individual consideration for grant eligibility on a first-come, first-served basis.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
