What to wear on a campus visit

So I have been getting ready for my campus visit to Kenan-Flagler. I didn't see a lot of information about what to wear, so I decided to write a post on what I feel is appropriate for different types of campus visits. To me, there are really three different types of campus visits.

1) Campus visit meeting with students, touring campus, and sitting in on a class (no interview)
2) Interview only
3) Both 1 & 2 in the same visit

Campus visit meeting with students, touring campus, and sitting in on a class (no interview)
My visit to Kenan-Flageler will fall under number one. So the question is "what is appropriate to where for a campus visit only with no interview?" In my opinion, you don't want to stick out too much when you are meeting with the students and sitting in on a class. Therefore, I feel that business casual is appropriate. I will be wearing a pair of dress pants and a dress shirt. In my opinion, a pair of nice khakis is appropriate as well.

Interview Only
This is a no-brainer. You MUST where business professional to an interview. I won't go into details on what type of suit to buy because I plan to do that in a future post.

Campus visit and interview
This is probably the most complicated scenario of the three. Again, you must where a suit to the interview portion of the visit. However, you may consider going with a business casual approach for the rest of the visit. This is appropriate IF you have a break to change. My suggestion would be to lose the suit jacket and keep the shirt and tie on. However, I would recommend reaching out to a current student to see what he/she recommends.

My next post will be an update on how the campus visit went and my initial feelings of the school.

I decided to chronicle my b-school journey. I will try to update this thread regularly and use it as my blog.

I already completed the GMAT, so I will begin this blog with my research on various MBA programs.
