Since she was a young child, Jordyn Scheitler’s connection to the Wolfpack has been solid. Her father and older sister were both proud NC State graduates.

It’s no surprise that when she dreamed about college, she envisioned herself at NC State. After she visited the Wilson College of Textiles to interview for the Centennial Scholarship Program, Scheitler’s mind was made up entirely. 

“I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to get the same education and experience anywhere else in the country,” she says. “The Wilson College’s reputation for providing a high-quality education in textiles and its commitment to fostering a supportive and inclusive learning environment were both major factors in my decision.” 

Her two Wilson College of Textiles degrees, a B.S. in Fashion and Textile Management and a Master of Textiles, more than prepared her for success after graduation. Today, she serves as the associate product line manager for men’s and boy’s apparel at Under Armour. Before this role, she was the company’s assistant product line manager for Project Rock and a gobal merchandising intern. 

“The college provided interdisciplinary coursework, which exposed me to different subject matters and really showed how everything ties back to textiles,” Scheitler says. “Overall, the comprehensive education, interdisciplinary approach and industry connections provided by the Wilson College of Textiles have significantly contributed to my preparedness for my career at Under Armour.”

She’s paying forward the support she received by joining the Dean’s Young Alumni Leadership Council as one of the council’s newest members. This volunteer position will allow her to provide leadership and guidance to Dean David Hinks and the North Carolina Textile Foundation, specifically regarding alumni engagement and fundraising.

While studying abroad, I was able to explore a new culture and broaden my global fashion/textile perspective. I went with several other students from Wilson College and took a fashion photography course and a textile engineering class.

Both courses were very hands-on and required field trips to museums, historic landmarks, universities and fashion exhibits. My experience studying in Prague left me with unforgettable memories, lifelong friendships and an appreciation for textiles through the lens of a new culture.
