What is Suit Up!?

Every student at some point might wonder, what exactly am I supposed to wear for an interview? That is a question that can be relatively easy to find an answer to. But, what we have heard from many students was that they were concerned about the cost of  buying interview clothing. While the we do have a Career Closet, a free resource for all NDSU students, we also recognized that was not the only way we could help. In response to this need, the NDSU Career and Advising Center decided to partner with JCPenney to participate in Suit Up! Each semester, colleges and universities from across the nation participate in Suit Up! events to help their students purchase business casual and business professional clothing. This year, due to COVID-19, our event is virtual and the coupon is good through October 31st. NDSU students, their families, and alumni receive great discounts off of all career wear.

To attend the event click here. You must text NDSU to 67292 in order to receive your coupon.  The coupons are a 30% off coupon to be used on sale items (for a total that will be the sale price minus the 30% off coupon) and on regular priced items as well. You can text NDSU to 67292 anytime before October 31st to receive your coupon and the coupon can be used online or in-store.
