Professional Dress Closet: Want to Get Raider Ready?

About the Closet

The Raider Ready Professional Dress Closet (RRPDC) at Shippensburg University is housed and managed by the Career, Mentoring, and Professional Development Center (CMPDC), and is operated in conjunction with the Women Leaders of the College of Business. The RRPDC offers wardrobe options to students as they prepare for professional meetings, such as interviews, internships, job shadow programs, career/job fairs, and more. The goal is to help students make the best possible impression and feel confident during a professional meeting without having to worry about how to afford it.

Tuesdays: 4:00 PM -6:00 PM

How it Works

The Raider Ready Professional Dress Closet is located inside the Ceddia Union Building (CUB), room 108. Any currently enrolled, undergraduate and graduate, Ship student can visit the closet during posted hours or by appointment, and must present their valid SUID card. With the assistance of the CMPDC staff, students may help themselves to a limited number of clothing items per semester. This service is available to students at no charge. CVR Uniforms located in downtown Shippensburg will offer dry cleaning services to Ship students who utilize the RRPDC at significantly reduced rates.  Students may be asked to provide feedback on their experience.

*The Raider Ready Professional Dress Closet cannot guarantee the availability of all sizes, and is not responsible for laundering clothing donations.

 

Donations

Through advertised clothing drives, donors contribute gently used, professional clothing items, such as, suits, dress pants, dress skirts, dress shirts and blouses, and neckties and bowties. Due to limited space, shoes are not accepted. The clothes may be brought directly to the Career, Mentoring, and Professional Development Center, Shippensburg University, 1871 Old Main Drive, CUB 108, Shippensburg, PA 17257 and deposited in the designated bin just outside the Center’s door. The clothes will be sorted, examined for damage, made available to students, or stored until the appropriate season. Rejected clothing items will be donated to local/area clothing charities. To schedule a donation or for questions, please contact Janet McKeithan-Janifer at the CMPDC, jcmcke@ship.edu or call (717) 477-1484.
