Bennie Career Closet

THE CAREER CLOSET WILL BE REOPENING STARTING BLOCK C! ALL PROTOCOLS WILL FOLLOW COVID-19 GUIDELINES. 

WE WILL ALSO STILL BE ACCEPTING DONATIONS.  DONATION INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN THE LEFT MARGIN UNDER MORE INFORMATION.

The College of Saint Benedict is committed to serving all Bennies and ensuring an equitable and meaningful educational experience. Part of the educational experience at Saint Ben’s involves professional development opportunities and career-related explorations.

For many of our students, however, purchasing new professional clothing is a daunting and stressful expense that can keep them from engaging with these opportunities. For some, it’s an expense they simply can’t afford. In order to support all students in their professional advancement, we have created a Bennie Career Closet. This closet will allow students who request access to the Closet to “shop” for business-appropriate and everyday dressy attire. Students will be able to select and keep two full professional outfits free of charge. The Career Closet will be stocked solely by donations from community members and Bennie alums. 

Note: While the sole purpose of the Closet is to find professional clothing, there is a large selection of clothing that all can benefit from. We encourage anyone wanting some new clothes to check out the Closet!


If you are interested in receiving access to the closet to select an outfit for an upcoming educational or professional event, please set up an appointment through the Hive.
