Chattanooga, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) – – The fashion police have hit UTC’s campus. I spoke with students and a faculty member on their opinion of how people dress when they come to campus. Do students take pride in how they dress, or do they just do the “sniff test”?
As you walk around campus, you will see all types of fashion. Some students really dress up for class and others are just casual. So what really is the motive behind the choice of student’s clothing?
Communication major, Jordan Cox stood out today in his bright turquoise shirt and matching tie. Cox said, “My mom always told me to look the best I can when I leave the house, so this is an everyday look for me.” Cox also went on to say that he doesn’t have a problem with students who dress causal for class.
To get a different perspective of campus attire, UTC Fine Art Center Box Office supervisor Sue Carroll said that she thinks the students should dress casual. “I would like to see the professors dress a little more professional. Sometimes its hard to tell them from the students”, said Carroll.
So when it really comes down to it, choice of campus attire is all about personal preference. Whether you’re rocking shorts and a tee, or making a fashion statement in a three piece suit, the main factor is that you’re showing up for class and that’s what really matters.
