Here to help Kent State students look & feel their best! The Career Closet provides donated items at no cost for all Kent State University students who need an appropriate outfit for an interview, career fair, or other professional event. Any student, staff, or faculty member with a current flashcard can access the Career Closet.

The Kent State Career Closet is growing! 

Started as an idea of a few female staff members looking for ways to give back and help students, the Career Closet has gone from that casual conversation to a multi-site organization, with the potential for events, pop-up shops, and more.
