Cougar Closet

Cougar Closet: A professional clothing bank that provides free new or lightly used business-ready clothes to WSU students in need.

The Cougar Closet is a campus effort providing professional clothing to all WSU students in need. We accept donations of lightly used business professional clothing to help prepare our students for their initial steps in the professional workplace. Whether it is for an internship, a networking event, a class presentation, or attending the Career Expo we want to keep our Cougs outfitted for their best look.
