We respectfully ask that visitors to our campus would be considerate of the college’s dress code. Please dress with modesty and decorum, especially when visiting classes and chapel. The following is an excerpt from the student handbook, regarding the on-campus dress code. We ask that you keep this code in mind when deciding what to wear for your visit. You should also be aware that the air conditioning during chapel works exceptionally well, so please dress accordingly.
“Dress modestly and discreetly...” (1 Timothy 2:9).*
Students are to dress and behave modestly
Examples of immodest clothing are tight-fitting or revealing clothing, halters, tank tops, blouses showing the midriff, backless or low cut dresses, low hip-hugger style pants, lack of proper undergarments and skirt or pant lengths which do not touch the kneecap or skirts which are slit above the kneecap…Clothing should not have logos or messages that are crude or indecent.
Chapel and Class Attire
During chapel, classes, labs and other class-related activities, dress must be more formal than at other times. Students should dress appropriately. Men are to wear full-length pants. Women are to wear dresses, skirts and tops, or pants and tops. Shorts are not allowed. Sports attire such as sweat pants should be reserved for less formal occasions. These same standards apply to students who have evening classes or attend evening college programs.
Sports attire (educational or intramural) should likewise be modest. Pants must at least touch the kneecap. Further regulations with regard to sports attire will be specified by the athletic division of the College.
