SUBJECT: OBSERVANCE OF THE SJUT DRESS CODE.
There has been a lapse in observance of the SJUT Dress Code. For the sake of the good name of the University, which has been created judiciously and dilligently over the last seven (7) years, the University will not allow the situation to get worse by tolerating purposeful violation of the Dress Code. The good name of any University is not built by good academic performance alone but also by a high level of discipline, decency and propriety among students and staff.
It is needless, at this juncture, to overstate the importance of upholding the good name of the University, which must be preserved at all costs. Students must enjoy behaving in a gentlemanly or lady-like manner through word and deed, rather than delighting in appearing rough, shabby, slovenly, cheap, seductive or whorelike.
Let every student be reminded that the dress you put on partly sums up what kind of person you are, because it sends a message about the things your mind likes and which your body practices. A person of a sound mind cannot dare walk half naked in public. Quite a number of students are walking half naked either in miniskirts or “mlegezo” (kata-k). We have reached a place where we must say enough is enough and students defying the Dress Code will have themselves to blame.
Notice is therefore, hereby given to all students to read, understand and observe the Dress Code. Also read the Student Handbook Chap. 4 Part III Section 7(t) on Disciplinary Offences and Part VI Section 22 and 23(a) on Penalties. The office will see to it that every student respects and upholds the Dress Code. Obedience to the code will pay him/her doubly: to be morally upright and free from penalty.
The whole SJUT community are invited to start the 2014/2015 Academic year with decency, moral and spiritual re-
armament. Let everyone of us remember the Genesis 1:27 quotation! In a tightly fitting pair of trousers/jeans, mini skirt or a kata-k pair of trousers we fall too far short of being an ‘image of God’! Read more
