DPCL Testimonials

To me, DPCL means more than just t-shirts. It’s helping develop each and every person in this company and beyond into a better person than they were the day before. University Tees has made me more confident in myself as well as my people skills and has set me up for success in all my future endeavors. This is the best job any college student can possibly have and I am proud to be a part of something so amazing.

Alex Wittner, University of Kentucky

University Tees has changed the way I think about business through their use of DPCL. DPCL reminds me that we can impact people in their everyday lives, even if we don’t know it. Through the use of DPCL, University Tees has inspired me to work hard and be confident in myself and my abilities in order to be the best I can at anything I do!

Meghan Strobel, Kansas State University

To me DPCL really comes down to caring about the people around you. Whether you are a Campus Manager or full-time team member at HQ, we do everything we can to invest in our team members to help them grow professionally and personally so that they can achieve their goals within the company and outside of work as well. The reason we have been so successful over the years is because we all work together as a team and don’t just look out for what’s best for ourselves, we all look out for what’s best for each other. It’s an amazing feeling to be able come into work every day and be surrounded by so many people who truly care!
