Reba Bock Career Closet

Also located inside the thrift store is the Reba Bock Career Closet. When trying to find a job, first impressions matter and the career closet provides a wide variety of professional clothing for career fairs and job interviews. The Reba Bock Career Closet was established at SHSU to assist students in obtaining these often-expensive clothes, 100% free.

The closet began through the Reba Bock fellowship and the ultimate goal is to professionalize students across campus and give them opportunities to succeed no matter their financial background.

Is it really free?

Yes! All items will be FREE to SHSU students and employees, so please be sure to bring your SHSU Bearkat Onecard for verification of your university status. Since items are free, limits are displayed in store. Limits are based on product type and availability.
