‘’All students are required to comply with the university code of dressing and wear appropriate attire during the study, at mealtime in the dining hall, and in the University functions,’’ Dr. Mbaabu’s memo reads.
The female students are prohibited from wearing turbo cuts, body-tight trousers, bare back tops, mini-skirts, skirts whose slits is above the knee line, and dresses/ blouses with neckline running down more than 4 inches.
Male students are prohibited from wearing earrings, untucked shirts, vests that show bare chests, and hats/caps in classes and offices.
