Additional Information:

Student Dress Code:

Please wear business casual attire (khaki’s and a polo) or business formal (suits/dresses). Dressing appropriately goes a long way. We suggest wearing something that would make sense for the industry but is still professional dress.

Avoid: sneakers, shorts, t-shirts or flip flops

To learn more about proper attire or to borrow some clothes, check out the Career Connections Center Molm Family Gator Career Closet.

**If students/alumnus are not properly dressed, they will be denied entrance to the event.**
