Troy University’s annual JCPenney Suit Up event will be held virtually this year and students can take advantage of the discount until Friday. 

An in-person shopping evening is usually held at a nearby story before the all-majors career fair in order to provide an opportunity for students to build their professional wardrobe, but a virtual option was provided this year with safety in mind. 

Students can text the code “TROYU” to 67292 to participate. This registration will ensure that they receive a 30% discount on career apparel and accessories. 

Internships are an essential aspect of life in college as they help students get ready for life after graduation. Therefore, students must have a wardrobe prepared for interviews and formal occasions. 

Caleb Oke, a senior computer science major from Lagos, Nigeria, said he thinks students should “dress how you would like to be addressed.” 

“Dressing for an interview helps you make a good first impression, and you will not get a second or third shot at it,” Oke said.

Dressing is a major component for any interview, and the Suit Up event has a goal to provide appropriate clothing at a reduced price for all students. 

“The first impression sticks like Gorilla Glue, and it is hard to change a bad first impression,” said Jonathan Taylor, a junior computer science major from Birmingham, Alabama. 

“The discount would allow students who are making ends meet financially at school even the burden of such a vital aspect of the interview process,” Taylor concluded.
