Career Closet CEO donation Sign

Please Help Stock the Career Closet! Help the McDaniel College/WMC Alumni Chapters Stock the CEO Career Closet For Events

Once again, the McDaniel College/Western Maryland College regional alumni chapters are working with the McDaniel College Center for Experience and Opportunity (CEO) to restock its career closet. The CEO Career Closet serves current students with new or gently used work attire to wear at job interviews, career fairs, and workplace settings. 

At the Green Terror Gatherings alumni events and throughout the month of January, the regional alumni chapters of McDaniel College (formerly known as Western Maryland College) are collecting donations of gently used (cleaned, preferably) or new career-style clothing and accessories. More specifically, the CEO career closet welcomes suits, dress shirts, dress pants, skirts, dresses, shoes, belts, jewelry, and other accessories. All sizes are needed and welcomed, though there is a particular need for clothing in XL and plus sizes. 

The alumni chapters are eager to again support McDaniel College students on their journey to career success, by preparing them for professional interviews and jobs. 

Can't make it to a Green Terror Gathering? Email the CEO office at for drop off locations.
