Dress and Grooming

Dress Standards For Campus Events

Activity and Recreational Attire

Dress standards for each event will be specified prior to the event. If no standard is indicated, the minimum standard will be campus attire. Modest casual attire may be worn at certain activities and events. Shorts and other pants ending above the ankle are inappropriate for campus. Shorts are only allowed at playing fields and must be modest in length. Traveling across campus to activities in shorts is not appropriate.

Event Attire

The minimum standard for men will be shirt and tie. Jeans are not appropriate. The minimum standard for women will be a dress (or a skirt and blouse or sweater). Casual dress or clothing will not be permitted.

Semiformal Dance Attire

Men: A tuxedo is optional, while church attire such as a sports coat or dressy sweater is recommended. A dress shirt and tie, formal half-collar shirt without tie, or turtleneck with a sport coat and dress slacks are acceptable. Dress shoes are required. Athletic shoes, t- shirts, kilts, jeans, and grubby attire are not appropriate.

Women: A formal dress is optional; Sunday dress is recommended (a modest dress with the hemline or slit at or below the knee). Dress shoes are required. Athletic shoes, sleeveless dresses, spaghetti straps, low-cut necklines, unlined see-through materials, and open-back dresses below the shoulder blades are not appropriate.

Special-Theme Dances

Dress should be consistent with university dress standards at all events. Appropriate dress will be specified in the publicity prior to the dance.

Swim Wear

Brigham Young University Idaho invites students to refer to, For the Strength of Youth when choosing their swimsuit attire. Specifically we are taught, “Never lower your dress standards for any occasion. Doing so sends the message that you are using your body to get attention and approval and that modesty is important only when it is convenient”.

Swimsuits should be modest in fabric, fit and style. Women’s suits should cover the stomach. Men’s suits should sit at the waist.
