The Professional Clothing Closet was launched in September 2016 with the help of the FSU Professional Fraternity Council.
The Florida State University Dean of Students Department has generously donated the space for the Professional Clothing Closet.
Special thanks to Kohl's for donating clothing racks, mirrors, and gift cards to aid in the launch of the Professional Clothing Closet and to FSU Libraries for providing hangers, a mirror, and volunteer support!
Appropriate items include business suits, dress shirts, blouses, professional slacks and/or skirts, and ties. All donation items must be cleaned appropriately and on hangers. Items with any damage and items without sizes clearly labeled will not be accepted.
