Suit Yourself

Overview | Eligibility | Selected Workshops | Faculty/Staff Recommendation | Apply

In partnership with JCPenney, the University of Memphis has launched a new Suit Yourself Program, for the 2017-2018 academic year. Suit Yourself is open to currently enrolled students at the University of Memphis who meet the selected criteria. The purpose of Suit Yourself is to ensure that students are 'career (Tiger Talent) ready' by:

  • Providing appropriate professional attire for career fairs, interviews and other professional events
  • Expanding students' personal and professional development
  • Building students' confidence and self-esteem through the power of personal appearance


As part of the Suit Yourself program, students will have an opportunity to attend one of four JCPenney in-store events that will be held over the course of the 2017-2018 academic year. During each in-store event, JCPenney associates will provide professional attire consultations, assist with selection of appropriate attire, as well as any fitting needs the students may have. Each participating student will receive a $150 JCPenney gift card, a 40% off discount coupon (will apply to predetermined apparel categories), and a style guide furnished by JCPenney.
