Let’s be honest, we all have faced the reality of planning the picture perfect pep rally outfit and end up trashing it because of violating the dress code.  Others are more brave and will accept that DR they knew was coming.  We decided to ask students their opinion on the dress code and what JA should change.

Ellie Cartwright:  “I think the biggest change that needs to be done with the dress code is outerwear.  When it gets colder. We don’t have a lot of options to wear that will keep us warm, since the classrooms are freezing.  I also think Friday dress days should be more flexible.  I don’t think it’s fair how those apart of a team are allowed to wear tank tops and short skirts, and people that are not apart of teams can’t even show their shoulders.  Another problem with the dress code is the multiple DR’s that most guys have gotten for the past year for their pants.  I don’t understand why the color of their pants is such a big issue.   I think it’s a waste of money that they have to buy a separate pair of pants that they only have to wear to school.”

Sara Wilson Fielder:  “I must agree with Ellie on this one.  I will not be hitting on any guy that is wearing Lands’ End.  Also, I love supporting my raiders on game day, but trying to spend hours in my closet to find leggings to go under my skirt, or pants that actually fit is a major struggle.  When other teams are abler to just throw on their skirts and tanks to support.  We are ‘All for one,’ and I believe that students should have the same dress codes, no matter what group you’re apart of! Go Raiders!”
