Bogey's Career Closet for McKendree University Students

Bogey’s Career Closet is a program established by Career Services and the School of Business that allows currently enrolled McKendree University students to select business attire donated by McKendree faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community residents.  Our goal is to assist students in need of business attire for networking events, career fairs, interviews, and other professional events.  We want students to look and feel their best as they enter the next stage in their career.  Learn more about professional dress recommendations!

  • Students can select up to four FREE items (suits count as two items and students can only select one suit) per academic year, but this may vary based on availability.

  • The Closet is open by Appointment Only Monday through Thursday during regular business hours in Clark Hall 104. Please email to schedule an appointment.

  • Students should bring their McKendree Student ID when selecting items.

*Bogey’s Career Closet operates through donations, so we cannot guarantee the availability of sizes and types of items.
