Do you have lightly used business attire that is sitting in your closet? The Statler College Career Closet accepts lightly used business attire donations such as suits, jackets, button down shirts, pants, etc. and the appropriate accessories such as shoes, belts, ties, jewelry, briefcases, etc. These generous donations will be the Closet selection base for our students.
