Wright State students and first-year alumni learned how to dress for success on Feb. 17 at JCPenney at the Fairfield Commons Mall.
The event was designed to help students prepare for job and graduate school interviews, career networking events and the Wright State Career Fair on March 19.
The JCPenney Suit Up event was open to any Wright State student in need of professional career apparel. More than 200 students registered for the event. Each student who attended received a 40 percent off coupon for career-related clothing, such as suits, dresses, sport coats, dress pants, shoes and accessories.
“This definitely comes at a perfect time for me with graduation coming up in the spring for me,” said Jason Utz, a senior business economics student.
A dozen staff members from the Career Center were on hand to assist students at the store.
