Program Information

UWF Suit Up Initiative Date: February 25, 2018 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm.

Where: JC Penney, 7171 N. Davis Hwy., Pensacola, FL., 32504

Transportation is available from the University Commons to JCPenney beginning at 5:45 p.m. on the night of the event. The bus will shuttle students back and forth from the event with the last bus leaving the Commons at 8:45 p.m.

Target audience: All UWF students and recent alumni

Even with these discounts, some students will still find having to purchase clothes burdensome. Through fundraising efforts and generous donations, UWF Career Services will purchase gift cards to JCPenney that will be distributed to students who demonstrate a need that aligns with the mission of the program.

From January 8 - February 9, 2018 students will be asked to submit a resume and a short video discussing how they will be impacted by this program.

The JCPenney Suit Up program is a national initiative that allows students to purchase discounted professional wear. UWF will partner with the local JCPenney to provide a day at the store where students will receive a 40 percent off coupon for any purchase of professional clothing. JCPenney has a list of brands that they identify as professional clothing and any item under those brands is eligible for the discount. This coupon applies an additional discount to clothing, even those already discounted, meaning students have access to incredibly affordable professional clothing options.
