Business Casual

We ask for candidates to dress business casual during rounds.


What this means: Neat and appropriate office wear.



  • If you dress more masculine, it would be a button-down or sweater and solid color shoes.

  • If you dress more feminine, smart casual could be a dress, or any combination of skirts, blouses, button-down shirts, sweaters, and pants. 


We completely understand that not all students have access to professional clothing. If you would like to be provided with clothing, we encourage you to reach out to The Wardrobe or email any of our e-board members.


The Wardrobe offers a rental model as well as a pop-up shop once a semester.
