By Carly Evans

Kent State University’s Career Exploration and Development is partnering with the JCPenney store at Chapel Hill Mall to host the College Suit-Up Event on Sunday, April 23, from 6:30-10 p.m.

The JCPenney store, located at 2000 Brittain Rd. in Akron, will offer students the opportunity to shop for interview and job apparel at discounted prices.

The private event is open exclusively to Kent State students and their parents and/or family/support members accompanied by the student. Students must have their FLASHcard to enter this after-hours event.

Students will be able to purchase up to $200 worth of items in the career apparel section at approximately 70 percent off using an in-store coupon provided that evening.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to come and shop, as well as serve as shopping assistants to provide advice and feedback to students or to help take measurements as needed.
