Bennie Career Closet

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 attire. Students will be able to select one full professional outfit for specific events they will be attending. Students do not pay for the clothing and can keep the outfits they choose. The Career Closet will be stocked solely by donations from community members and Bennie alums. 

The Bennie Career Closet is open for Spring Semeter starting Monday, January 13th .

If you are interested in receiving access to the closet to select an outfit for an upcoming educational or professional event, please fill out the following form:

Hours of Operation:
