The Warhawk Wardrobe

A professional Career Closet

ww logo

The Warhawk Wardrobe is a career closet initiated by ULM’s First Lady, Dr. Christine Berry, in partnership with the ULM Career Center. The career closet allows Warhawk students to obtain business attire from a wide selection of clothing donated by ULM employees, alumni, and community professionals. It is available to current ULM students who need career appropriate clothing for the purpose of participating in on/off-campus interviews and professional events. The Warhawk Wardrobe is located in the University Library, room 201E. Our goal is to ensure that the best on the bayou look their best throughout their job search so they can make a positive impression as they enter the professional sector.
