Terry J. Lundgren Center Student Advisory Board (SAB)
A premier student touch point that connects retailing students to the Lundgren Center for Retailing’s Corporate Advisory Board partners, on and off campus. The Student Advisory Board is a dynamic team of diverse individuals who are dedicated to applying the skill and energy required to maintain and satisfy the relationships with the Corporate Advisory Board. As ambassadors of the Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing, we seek to build relationships between students searching for a career in retailing and the corporate world. By having the support of the Corporate Advisory Board partners and sponsors, RCSC students are able to experience unique opportunities in career and professional development opportunities, which include internships, study tours, in-class industry speakers, and research.

TREND – TREND is a business club catering to the fashion industry.

Trend is the home of both business and fashion as our 60+ members learn from leaders in the industry and from faculty from the Fashion and Retailing and Consumer Sciences programs, and pursue their goals in the fashion industry.

Each year, Trend selects members to travel to the MAGIC Fashion Trade Show, the largest fashion trade show in the US, in Las Vegas, Nevada, participate in Phoenix Fashion Week,  and are consistently learning from representatives from local and national retailers. However, our favorite event of the year is our completely student-run fashion show during UA Fashion Week that features looks of local designers and our own Trend members.

To showcase our member's work we maintain an active fashion blog. There, you will find our favorite trends, tips, and inspirations for your next look. Whatever your passion and goals are in fashion, you are sure to find a home in Trend.

With Trend, you are sure to find something that inspires you!
