Savvy shoppers

Wright State University students and first-year alumni learned how to dress for success on Sept. 22 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 Oct. 15.

The JCPenney Suit Up event was open to any Wright State student in need of professional career apparel. More than 155 students participated in the event. Each student who attended received a 40% off coupon for career-related clothing, such as suits, dresses, sport coats, dress pants, shoes and accessories.

“I’m a college kid and I’m not able to afford things at normal prices,” said Grayson Edwards, a sophomore acting major who purchased a suit. “I think it’s awesome. They should continue this every single year.”
