UHD Career Centers Offer Free Business Attire for UHD Students

UHD’s Main Career Center held a clothing donation drive last fall for their career closet. UHD students from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Public Service, or College of Sciences and Technology in need of business attire or interview-appropriate clothing can visit the Career Center at One Main Building, Suite 402 South, and pick out clothes for free. 

UHD students from the Marilyn Davies College of Business (MDCOB) in need of business attire or interview-appropriate clothing can visit the MDCOB Career Center at the Shea Street Building (home of MDCOB), Suite B104.

“We had a great turnout from our staff and faculty in terms of donations, and really want to thank everyone who donated for giving back to our students,” said Program Assistant Moses Monge. “I hope Gators who need professional clothes will take advantage of this free resource.”
