Suit Up: Professional Attire Event

An exclusive event for Miami University students
An exclusive event for Miami University students

Great opportunity to expand their professional wardrobe

"What should I wear?" is a common question students ask as they prepare for job fairs, networking events, internships, and interviews. Their next question is often "But what if I don't have any professional clothes?" The Center for Career Exploration & Success helps student learn more about what is considered professional attire. Finding an outfit that is both affordable and professional can be difficult for anyone, let alone those who are new to the workforce.

Through a partnership with the JCPenny store in Colerain, students and one-year out alumni can purchase professional clothing items with exclusive discounts Sunday, Sept. 9, 6:30-9:30 p.m. when the store will be open only to Miami students. Shuttles from the Oxford campus will be provided. This event is free!

Other activities available at the Suit Up event include:

  • A chance for a free mini-makeover from Sephora inside JCPenney.
  • A free salon consultation and express bar hair touch up at the JCPenney Salon.
  • A business headshot by the JC Penney Portrait Studio with packages starting at $29.99.
