Bogey's Career Closet for McKendree University Students

Bogey’s Career Closet is a service that is sponsored by Career Services for 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.  

  • Students can select up to four FREE items per academic year.  Please note that a suit counts as two items.  A maximum of one suit can be selected while a student, unless a different suit is donated and accepted into the closet.

  • The Closet is open by Appointment Only Monday through Friday 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.
