Career Closet

The Career Services Career Closet is OPEN!!! Featuring various sizes of slightly-used business professional clothing, Racers have the opportunity to come in and 'shop' for suits, shirts, skirts, blouses, shoes, and other accessories. Find something you like? You get to keep it - for no charge! One outfit per student per semester, please.

Visit Career Services in 100 Oakley during normal operating hours (8am - 4:30pm) to check out the closet.

Career Closet Donation Guidelines

Thinking about donating to the Career Closet? That’s wonderful!

What we take: Suits, dress shirts, slacks, skirts, blouses, belts, and dress shoes

What we don’t take: Casual clothing (sneakers, jeans, yoga pants, t-shirts, etc) OR formalwear (prom dresses, tuxedos, etc)

In order to best serve our students, we have the following guidelines for donations:

  • Clothing should be clean
  • Donations should be free from holes/rips/tears
  • Clothing shouldn’t have any stains
  • Shoes should be able to take a shine
  • Given that students will be wearing these clothes to interviews and events, donations should be of
    recent vintage and appropriate styling

If you have items that align to these standards, contact us at 270-809-3735 or send us an email at for donation details!
