Statler Career Closet

The Statler College Career Closet, located in the Engineering Sciences Building room 137 (next to Student Services Office), was established by the WVU chapters of Sigma Phi Delta, Alpha Omega Epsilon and the WVU Society of Women Engineers section. It allows students to obtain business attire from clothing donated by WVU faculty, staff, alumni, students and friends.
