An initiative of the SU Student Government Association, the new program allows students to borrow professional clothing to wear for job interviews and career fairs. The target audience is those who may not have thought to bring their best clothes with them to campus or who may not be at a point in their early or pre-careers where they feel comfortable paying for high-end professional wear.
"We looked at other campuses and discovered that some have had programs like this for 18-20 years," said Tasneem Elbashir, SGA marketing and communications director, who, with her predecessor, Tristan Marino, proposed the initiative to SU officials last academic year.
Students wishing to borrow clothes from the closet first must have their resumes reviewed by the Career Services Office. Afterward, students will be expected to return the items, which will be washed and placed back into the closet for others to borrow.
