As the Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, commences the 2015/2016 Academic Session, we bring you an issue that has generated a lot of concern. That is the issue of indecent dressing. In this edition, some of the returning students bare their minds on the Dress Code introduced by the University Management and the need for maximum compliance.
KWASU is a world-class University. I so much buy the idea of the dress code introduced by the University Management. As a matter of fact, if an Institution like this does not have a dress code, people would just be dressing anyhow. Although it is impossible to satisfy human wants, some people buy the idea while some others find it difficult to comply. But whether they like it or not, they just have to abide by the rules and regulations of the University. It is said that the clothes you wear are a factor in how you are perceived by others.

Some students dress well while some others violate the dress code, especially female students. The way they dress sometimes is nothing to write home about, particularly outside the school campus. Some guys too are guilty of this. I urge the University Management to constantly sensitise us on the dangers inherent in immoral dressing because I believe no student would claim ignorance after such concerted effort had been made.

I think the dress code is okay because some students are fond of indecent dressing. This often leads to sexual harassment and a distraction to male students. In all, I would like to commend the new Dean of Student Affairs for ensuring students’ compliance with the dress code. This has really helped in making sure that some of the students who used to dress indecently get used to decent mode of dressing.

The University is really doing well by regulating students’ mode of dressing. If a female student, for instance, dresses indecently, it can lead to sexual harassment on campus. So, we really like the dress code introduced by the University Management.

Our dress code is okay because at times, students like to behave the way they like and even wear anything they want. But that can no longer work here because it is against the rules and regulations of the University. So, the dress code is okay by me because it inculcates discipline and morality in us.

The students’ mode of dressing here is very okay because if there is nothing like dress code by the University authorities, students would wear anything they want. They might even dress shabbily. For the school to have given us the dress code, it is actually a good thing for us.
Shehu Ahmed Damilare, 200L Business and Entrepreneurship
The dress code introduced by the University is a welcome development because we are regarded outside as responsible students. As a matter of fact, your appearance is a reflection of where you come from. So, the dress code buttresses the fact that KWASU is a University with zero tolerance for indiscipline. Besides, I would like the University Management to intensify efforts in enforcing the policy, so as to ensure maximum compliance.
