The opening of the Closet has also allowed NCA staff to interact with and advise students in a different setting where they can tailor their advice to specific interviews and situations. Staff can help explain concepts — like what business casual constitutes — that students might not understand.
“It’s been fun to talk to students and cheer them on as they’re preparing for what’s next and also talk to them about professional attire,” Harclerode continued, “because for a lot of students this is the very first time they might be stepping out to do something that would require more professional dress.”
All clothes in the Closet are donated and mostly come from faculty, alumni and other members of the Northwestern community.
