What We Do

The Free Business Attire Pop-Up Shop began Spring 2017 as a grassroots project by the College of Human Sciences.

Multicultural Liaison Officers (MLO) assist all ISU students in finding gently-used business clothing in preparation for career fairs, interviews, conferences, award ceremonies, graduation, etc.

Gently-used business clothing, accessories and shoes are donated by community members and then staged in a retail setting for students to stop by during the two-day event to pick out, try-on and leave with as many items needed for free.

The attendance at the Pop-Up Shops has grown from 70 to 508 students at a single event.

What We Offer

The ISU Pop-Up Shop offers blazers, suits, shirts and blouses, trousers, shoes and accessories; all for free! These range in styles and sizes.
