Fashion forward Ball State students added some new threads to their closets. Thanks to the volunteer efforts of Cardinal Closet, an on-campus clothing donation organization created by Ball State Housing and Residence Life’s (HRL) Student Action Team, and a team of fashion students, attendees were able to create professional outfits from donated clothing at no cost to the students. Attendees made appointments ahead of time and were given one-on-one style consultations from student stylists at the Cardinal Closet styling event, which ran for four hours Feb. 8.
