Hahah ah I know I am. I’m coming from NYC and love dressing up/looking trendy, so it will be an adjustment

People will start the school year in business casual and It will descend into athleisure by October. The schools make a big thing about looking professional that the first year to buy for the first couple months, and then give up on.

Yes! Honestly anything is okay. It depends a little on what’s going on at school. If you have recruiting events, then suits. If just classes, then much more casual (jeans/dresses etc). I have also seen lots of folks wear shorts, especially in summer months

Sweatshirts every day

Unless you’re going to HBS, no need to dress up for classes

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
