Troy University’s Career Closet reopens for students to get free professional clothing

Troy University’s Career Closet is making a comeback.

The Career Closet is a selection of clothing that is available to students that are in need of professional clothing for job interviews, work or any other professional events.

The Career Closet has been closed for quite some time due to COVID but now Troy University’s Career Services has brought it back in order to help students out.

“It’s completely free to you and it’s donated from our professors and people in the community so definitely take advantage of it,” says Program Advisor for Career Services Erika Madigan. “It’s really hard to afford a full suit sometimes and we have those available for students who have interviews coming up or any kind of presentations that they have and they just don’t have those those funds to buy those clothes so that’s what this closet is for to really help our students.”

The closet is located on the third floor of John Robert Lewis Hall.

Students are limited to three articles of clothing per semester.

“We’re actually open three days a week now on campus,” says Madigan. “So we’re open on Monday afternoons. We’re open Wednesdays during midday so from 11 to 2 and then Friday mornings we’re open and if those times aren’t working for them they can schedule on handshake a separate appointment time as well.”
