With the diversity of Sacramento City College, we have an array of fashion-forward, hip, chic, and stylish students.
But, remember this: what you would wear out with your friends on the weekend may not necessarily be what you should wear on a college campus.
With that said…pull up your pants, take off your cap, and tie your shoelaces.
A college campus is a learning environment. Sure, you can wear something that represents your personality in a respectful and proud way, but you should strive to be dressed in the way that makes you feel good and look good from the inside out.
The truth is you will be in a classroom sitting at a desk separated just inches away from other students in front, behind, to the left, and to the right of you. You will want to be comfortable so that you can focus on the day’s lessons and lectures. Don’t distract yourself or others because you have something that needs to be pulled up, pulled down, or pulled over!
Classroom temperatures can be unpredictable. It may be 104 degrees outside, but it could be freezing in the classroom so you may want to cover up! Lastly, be kind to your feet. You will be walking briskly from one building to another – sometimes jumping over rain puddles and squirrels – so your footwear should be comfortable and durable! It’s okay to wear pretty sandals, but you don’t need the heels to elevate you 10 feet off of the ground.
While we don’t have a dress code at Sacramento City College, we do have a “Student Standard of Conduct.” We believe that our students are responsible, represent themselves in a repectful way, and uphold the reputation of the college and their fellow students.
At the end of your college journey, the only time that we will be concerned about what you are wearing is when you put on your cap and gown.
