Morehouse College Administration has enacted a new “Appropriate Attire Policy,” which will set a campus-wide standard for student’s attire. The policy outlines 11 expectations pertaining to what students should not wear, including, sagging pants, headgear (unless for religious purposes), and clothing associated with “women’s garb.” Dr. William Bynum, vice president of the Office of Student Services explained to the campus newssite, The Daily Tiger.com, that the dress code was initiated by students, who voiced concerns to administration about inappropriate attire on campus. Of course, the new initiative has been met with resistance. “The perception of the ‘well-dressed’ man may not be shared by everyone that attends the college,” sophomore Michael Leonard told the newssite. “Students should apply [the dress code] to their lives as they see fit.”-DL
