OHIO UNIVERSITY - CHILLICOTHE

 

2019 News Hilltopper Professional Closet
March 11, 2019 : Hilltopper Professional Clothing Closet now available to students

 

The Ohio University Chillicothe Social Work program has opened the Hilltopper Professional Clothing Closet with the desire to help students in need of professional attire.

 

The decision to start the closet was reached when faculty at OHIO Chillicothe began to notice some of their students struggling to obtain business attire for job/employment interviews. Emergence of the problem led faculty and staff with a drive to help their students succeed to start the closet.

 

The closet is intended to be a discreet way for students in need to obtain the necessary clothing to succeed in the interview process. Clothing from the closet can be used in any interview situation, such as job interviews or for internships/practicums. The goal is to help equip students with the business look, so they can excel in their interview experiences.

 

A range of clothing options will be provided in both male and female styles, with sizes from small to extra-large. Suits, jackets, shoes, handbags, and more will be available.

 

Access to the closet is free for OHIO Chillicothe students, with no application process or obligations. The closet will be located in Room 20 of Bennett Hall, and students are free to return or keep any items they receive.

 

The Social Work program is also still accepting donations of items for the closet.

 

Those interested in obtaining clothing from the closet, or making a donation, can contact Mary Brown, faculty member in the Social Work program to donate or make an appointment. Brown can be contacted at 740.774.7263 or at brownm7@ohio.edu, and is available to meet on week days and some evenings.
