Students in need of career clothing can visit the Wayne State Food Pantry from Tuesday through Thursday, Oct. 24-26, to learn about the available food and toiletries, and pick up clothing to help them prepare for interview opportunities through Wayne State’s Career Services Office. Hours for the Wayne State Food Pantry are 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays. The Wayne State Food Pantry is located on the southwest side of Morey Hall on campus.
