College Colors Day is a great way to get your employer to let you wear your favorite college garb to work.
College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that make the college experience great by encouraging people across America to wear apparel of their favorite college or university throughout the day.
Additionally, College Colors Day, which coincides with “back to school” and the kick-off of intercollegiate athletics, strives to advocate higher education through increased public awareness, and celebrates the achievements of colleges and universities, acknowledging their fundamental importance.
Since its inception in 2005, College Colors Day has grown rapidly across the country. Thousands of organizations and millions of individuals participate annually by donning their team colors and sharing in the college spirit with friends and colleagues.
Courtney Hixon is the SVP of Human Resources for Collegebookrenter.com and parent company C.A. Jones Mangement Group. She said “The company is encouraging employees to show their team spirit and support for their favorite college or university on College Colors Day. This celebration will be a great way for employees to get excited for the kickoff of the intercollegiate sports season. We will also have a $5 jean day for employees and will be donating all proceeds to the United Way”.
Hixon went on to add “Special projects or events like College Colors Day allows for employees to show enthusiasm about something they care about in the work place. It makes a ‘normal’ work day more exciting, which I think leads to increased productivity”.
