Borrow a Suit from the Suit Up Program 

Suit Up is a program that provides students with business attire to wear when attending career fairs, interviews, school presentations and networking events. The cost of purchasing suits can be prohibitive for students who are on a tight budget, so the Suit Up program aims to provide students access to a closet of professional attire that they can borrow at no cost, other than the dry cleaning charge. The program is co-sponsored by the Green Club, the Alumni Relations Office, and the Center for Career Development (CCD).
