Wright State University students and alumni are welcome to attend the fourth Suit-Up event at two area JCPenney stores on Feb. 23. The Fairfield Commons Mall and the Miami Valley Mall in Piqua will welcome Wright State students looking for deals on professional attire.
The event is designed to help students and alumni prepare for job and graduate school interviews, career networking events and both the Lake Campus Career, Internship and Networking Expo on March 16 and the Wright State Career Fair on March 17.
This will be the first time that the Piqua location has participated. “This is great not only for Lake Campus students but for Wright State students that might live north of Dayton,” said Lisa Duke, assistant director of career services.
The Suit-Up event is closed to the public but is open to any Wright State student and alumni in need of professional career apparel. Last spring, more than 155 students participated in the event.
The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Each student who attends will receive a 30% off coupon for career-related clothing, such as suits, dresses, sport coats, dress pants, shoes and accessories. Both locations will have Wright State and JCPenney associates on hand to assist shoppers.
“This is a great partnership between Wright State’s Career Services, Student Involvement and Leadership and the JCPenney Corporation,” said Duke.
