First Impressions

First Impressions (previously EcoDepot) is a service that provides students with access to professional clothes for job interviews and workplaces.

Not only does it make fashion accessible to all students, but it’s also a very Earth-friendly way to “shop”! First Impressions returns this semester with the same great service, but with a brand new look and new space. First Impressions is a student clothing depot offering previously loved separates and accessories for men and women suitable for job interviews and the workplace – at no cost to our students! Staff onsite can assist with styling and outfit coordination.
