Rogers State University is joining JC Penney and surrounding institutions to offer extensive discounts on men’s and women’s professional dress clothing to local students. Suit Up will be held from 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Sunday, March 5, at the Woodland Hills Mall, 7021 S. Memorial Drive in Tulsa.
JC Penney is offering students from RSU and other participating schools an extra 40 percent discount on select dress brands like J. Ferrar, Stafford, Liz Claiborne and more. The offers are also available to RSU faculty and staff members.
All students, faculty, and staff who are interested in the event must bring their RSU I.D. and check in at the RSU table upon arrival.
Calli Knight, RSU’s Coordinator of Career Services, finds a connection between success and professional attire and believes that “Suit Up equips individuals with the right tools to succeed educationally and professionally.”
“As students look towards transitioning from their undergraduate degree program to grad school or their first job, they can get a step up by utilizing the resources RSU offers,” Knight said. “This is a great opportunity for students to come get professional dress clothing.”
There will be a variety of dress styles and sizes including juniors for women and big and tall sizes for men. JC Penney will have additional staff members available for sizing, measurements, and questions. For those who can’t find their size in store, the 40 percent discount coupon applies for online purchases as well.
Knight also organizes a program at RSU called the Career Closet which enables students to pick and choose from a variety of professional dress clothing styles for free.
Other participating institutions include: Oral Roberts University, Tulsa Community College, University of Oklahoma Tulsa, and Langston University Tulsa.
