Another option to consider is donating your old clothes to Truman's Closet. Residents can do this when they are moving out of the dorm in the spring, or take items whenever they please. Truman's Closet is a free resource available to all Mizzou students, staff, and faculty in which they can borrow professional attire and cap and gowns.
