Dress me for my interview :)

I just found out I have an interview for a part-time job on campus. It's with our Visitors Centre, giving tours of the campus. I'm super excited, and I really want the job! There is a group interview next Monday, and then an individual interview in the following days. It says dress is to be casual. I've never dressed casual for an interview in my life...so, what do you think this means exactly? Give some examples of what you might wear...

    I would wear a pair of nice, dark jeans with a nice blouse.  Show that you can follow instructions and still look professional.

    I'd wear black pants with flat shoes and a nice blouse. Not super dressy, but still professional. 

    ETA: Good luck with the interviews!

    Well, we obviously went to school - something you didn't do, as evidenced by your poor English.

    Beads I go with a nice pair of dark jeans or khaki and a button up shirt.  Still casual and serious. 

    rirules-Of course we work, I'm sure you're working on being a total Bi@tch right now aren't you.

    Go Lyn!

    Beads - I'd vote for casual pants that aren't jeans, if you have any (like khakis or twill slacks) with a button-shirt, sweater, or other nice top.

    I second (third?) the no jeans.  I like the idea of khakis or twill pants over black pants though.  And the button down or sweater.

    Good luck!!!

    <div>I would assume most people either have careers or working towards their career(in school). You can still post and work.. It's called multitasking:) OR I'm sure we all don't live in the same time zones.. Do you work? </div>
