Comet Closet: Kick It into High Gear

With the fall 2017 semester quickly approaching, the Comet Closet has launched a shoe campaign, "Kick It into High Gear," to support Comets who will soon be interviewing for their first job or internship.

Shoes, Shoes and more shoes!

With this campaign, the Comet Closet team hopes to provide students in need with quality dress shoes that will, both figuratively and literally, allow them to walk confidently towards their career goals/ step into a new chapter of their academic or professional life.

Goal: 25 pairs

The money raised through this campaign will go to the purchasing of 25 new pairs of shoes. We are anticipating many more Comets utilizing the Closet this fall for their job interviews and internships, so any money that is raised through "Kick It into High Gear" will help us provide the footwear needed for success!

What is the Comet Closet?

The Comet Closet is a program that empowers UT Dallas students to achieve economic independence by providing the education, professional attire, and development tools they need to land their first job or internship. Since the launch of our Impact UT Dallas crowdfunding campaign in 2015, The Comet Closet has organized an amazing team of student volunteers, developed a comprehensive inventory system and collected over 1,200 pieces of professional clothing.
