RU Career Closet Launch Day

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

The RU Career Closet is presented by the Rockford University’s Career Development Department.

What is the RU Career Closet?

The Career Closet is a place where Rockford University Students can find professional clothing for FREE! The Career Closet is donation-driven and designed specifically for RU students who are looking for professional clothing to wear for an interview or for their first day on-the-job. The closet includes professional clothing of all types: dress pants, shirts, jackets, dresses, skirts, ties and MORE!

How does it work?

Each student will be allowed one outfit per semester and will need to show their Rockford University ID before looking through the Career Closet. Would YOU like to take a look at what the Career Closet has to offer? Make an appointment by emailing or by attending our open hours during lunch.

When is it open, and where is it located?

The Career Closet is located in the Grace Roper Lounge of the Burpee Student Center. Visit it in February during the following dates and times:
