Career Services Clothing Closet

The Clothing Closet started back in 2012 with just a single suit from Armstrong President Dr. Linda Bleicken.

“Dr. Bleicken had professional clothing she wished to donate from her very own closet, and she thought that Armstrong students could benefit from the clothes,” explained Lyon.
At that moment, the Clothing Closet was born, and Career Services began soliciting donations. In just a year, the event has grown significantly, in large part due to the commitment of generous donors. Deja Bleu consignment, David’s Dry Cleaners, residents of the Landings, local law firms, individual donors from the community, and Armstrong alumni, faculty and staff came together to provide more than 1,300 pieces of clothing and accessories.

Bring your gently used clothes to the Alumni office or the Career Services office any time. 


Student Life Captain's Cupboard

Armstrong's Office of Student Life is proud to present The Captain's Cupboard, an emergency food program for students, faculty, and staff in need.
