Career Services Career Closet 

The Career Clothes Closet (CCC) is an on-campus program dedicated to providing professional attire to students who are preparing for an interview, networking or participating in an internship where professional attire is needed.  Only current A&M-SA students may obtain clothing items from the Career Closet.  Certain clothing items, including suit jackets, slacks, and dress skirts, will be available for check-out.  There is no limit to the number of times a student may check-out a suit per fall or spring semester.  Some items, including dress shirts, belts, ties, and shoes, will be available for students to take away and keep.  A maximum of two takeaway items may be obtained each fall and spring semester.  Interested students are asked to schedule an appointment to visit the Career Closet anytime during office hours, making it quick and convenient to pick up clothing free of charge.
