Arkansas State University students start clothing closet

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - What started out as a class project at Arkansas State University is now changing the lives of fellow students.

Fifty students in the College of Business worked on a clothes closet as a class project.

This is no ordinary closet. Located on the second floor of the College of Business, this "Career Closet" provides clothing to fellow students in need of professional attire for job interviews.

Freshman Greyson Fullbright is one of the students who will work on the closet this semester.

"I've never really thought about how expensive it can be to transition from high school attire to going into the professional world," said Fullbright. "I thought it was something that could really turn into a great project."

Junior Joseph Horton is one of the students who helped make this closet a reality. He said it took everyone working together.

"We divided up into teams and tackled it," said Horton. "Each team had a set thing they had to do and we all jumped in and worked on it."

To shop in the Career Closet, students must have a resume reviewed, go through a mock interview and have a GPA of at least 2.5.
