2018-2019 is our sixth academic year of offering free professional attire to students through Career Outfitters. This program launched in 2013, beginning with several months of collecting donated items for students. We held the Career Outfitters shopping event once each academic year from 2013-2014 through 2017-2018. In 2018-2019, we are holding shopping dates in both Aug. 2018 and Feb. 2019. Thanks to all who have donated, and to many student volunteers, we have given away thousands of clothing items to Virginia Tech students.

Roanoke Times feature on the 2017 event.
