The Career Development Center, in collaboration with JCPenney, will host Suit-Up, an exclusive shopping event for SUNY Plattsburgh students, Sunday, Sept. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m.

The in-person event will allow SUNY Plattsburgh students the chance to purchase professional attire, whether it is select dress apparel, shoes or accessories, at up to 60 percent off ticketed prices.“

First impressions in job interviews and internships are important. Unfortunately, professional clothing can be expensive,” said Morgan Pellerin, assistant director of the Career Development Center, and organizer of this event. “The Suit-Up event with JCPenney allows students to begin developing their professional wardrobe at a significantly reduced price.”

The SA shuttle will be available for students to take to the mall for the Suit-Up event.
