From the community, for students

LOCATED IN BREWER HALL ROOM 271

We want our students to succeed, and we also want to make sure that stressing about that interview suit is not a concern getting in the way of student success. Find quality used professional attire free to students at the Campus Closet.

Blugolds are busy people, finding creative and adventurous ways to pursue their degrees every day. We want them focused on academics, on their personal and professional growth, and not on the financial stress of finding professional clothing to wear for interviews, internships, in cold weather, or even every day. 

That is why we've established a special student support program called the Campus Closet, where students can find gently worn clothing generously donated by campus and surrounding community members, all free of charge. This is a win-win for all. Area professionals get to know that their past investments in professional clothing is being paid forward to the next generation, and Blugolds are able to channel their financial resources into the business of being a student and new graduate. They will have a lifetime ahead to build their own work wardrobe — this is just a nice jump start.
