          Mock Class
          Luncheon
          Student Panel
          Alumni Panel
          Recetion with students and Alumni

Please anyone who has been to this kind of event please advise...I don't want to over-dress and I don't want to under-dress either.
Thanks in advance...John

Dress like 3-6 at the after parties, minus the grills.

Think "What would your mom tell you to wear"

Slacks, dry cleaned shirt

"What would your mom tell you to wear", Ans: My mom will want me to wear my traditional Nigerian attire so that's why I'm not asking her. lol

I think you should dress business casual... I believe that some will wear suits..but I think that would be too much... slacks..button down and a blazer..sweater..or sweater vest... leave the tie at home...

yes, 3-6 had on nice suits at the Oscar after parties. 

Your mother would want you to dress professional and wear the traditional American businesswear. 

Slacks, dry cleaned collared shirt.  I agree with Blk on the tie issue.

Good luck.
