Adora Hicks, who will receive her doctoral degree in counselor education and supervision Saturday, spent three years as a graduate assistant in UA’s Career Center. There, she noticed students wouldn’t engage in career-related activities because they lacked the professional attire. To ease the financial burden on students, she, with the support of Melinda King, executive director of the Career Center, created the Crimson Career Closet, a service that allows students to borrow up to four items of professional attire for up to a week at a time, free of charge.
