New dress code for men of Morehouse

Oct. 16, 2009 at 1:18 PM   |   Comments

ATLANTA, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The young men of Morehouse College in Atlanta have gotten the word -- no more baggy pants on campus.

Further, no sunglasses inside, no "do-rags" or hoods or high-heeled shoes, no jeans at major events, no lewd messages on clothing and nothing normally worn by women.

It's all part of a new dress code at Morehouse, a historically African-American college, an effort to "get back to the legacy" of school leaders, Dr. William Bynum, vice president of the Office of Student Services told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"We expect our young men to be Renaissance men," said Bynum. "When people go about campus we want them to represent the college in an appropriate manner."

So far, the new code has earned mixed reviews.
