Internship opportunities are relatively common through various businesses and colleges, but how many interns get the chance to design university memorabilia through a well-known retailer? For five HBCU students, this dream came true via a 10-week mentorship program with Urban Outfitters (UO).
Through their internship, the students, collectively referred to as the UO Summer Class '21, got the opportunity to design a 20-piece collection that featured their schools' branding. Essentially, Urban Outfitters partners with three HBCU powerhouses: Clark Atlanta, North Carolina A&T, and Howard.
UO will feature the five students in a summer class video series highlighting their behind-the-scenes experiences at the internship.
The UO Summer Class '21 collection is available to shop today. Get familiar with the five design interns below!
