It’s Time to Suit Up
The Bryan School is partnering with JCPenney to co-host the 6th annual Suit Up, a week-long event designed to provide free* and deeply discounted suits to our students. While this year’s event will look slightly different, the purpose remains the same: To help build your professional wardrobe without breaking the bank.
This year, we are excited to announce we will be hosting a week-long online event. Please read below for more details.
*Sponsorship recipients receive an e-gift card to be used on the purchase of a full professional outfit during the week of Suit Up. Application information can be found at the bottom of this page.
What: Suit Up
When: February 7-13, 2022
Where: Online at https://www.jcpenney.com (Virtual)
Who: Current Bryan School Majors Only
How: In the weeks leading up to the event, Bryan School students will receive multiple emails with more detailed instructions about the how to attend Suit Up virtually. Emails will include information about what to expect, how to find your size, how to prepare for the event, and how to obtain a unique discount code that can be used for an online purchase during the week.
Why You Should Participate
As you transition from college to the real world, you will need business professional attire. Whether you need a suit for an interview, a career fair, an internship, or your first day on the job, this is a great opportunity to get a free or discounted suit that makes you exude confidence.
The discounts given during Suit Up are exclusive to Bryan School students and come at a higher percentage than the typical coupons you would find in an advertisement. Suit Up gives you the opportunity to maximize your spending on important items like suits, blouses, dress shirts, skirts, pants, belts, shoes, and more!
Every year, our generous group of Bryan School sponsors provide a limited number of sponsorships to cover the cost of a full professional outfit ($250 value). They recognize the importance of being able to dress for success, and they want to make sure you are looking and feeling your best in professional situations! If you are interested in applying for a sponsorship, please view the information below.
