As Christians, whatever we do must be to the glory of God, our creator. This is more particularly so in the way we dress. In many decided rape cases, judges have ruled that, the victims were accomplices, having induced their assailants by their mode of dressing and general appearances. The Yorubas also agree that the way one dresses generally reflects on the way others perceive one – either with respect or disdain. A person who dresses like a hooligan is seen and treated as such while a lady who dresses like a prostitute is seen and treated as such. When a woman dresses with half the breast bare and uncovered or when from her stomach down to the abdomen is uncovered or when a skirt is so short that it leaves little or nothing to the imagination or when seated, her underwear is exposed, all these amount to invitation to the opposite gender to buy sex for money or other favors such as marks.
As a Christian university, Joseph Ayo Babalola University is determined to uphold purity and good conduct, has put in place a dress code that all students must comply with. Students are expected to dress formally between 8.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. on campus.
GENERAL DRESS CODE
1. Every student shall desire decency in dressing and appearance that presents the image of a cultured and educated person.
2. Moderation in dressing is a sign of a good Christian upbringing. Extravagance in dressing is outward evidence of vanity. It is capable of leading youth astray especially when parents are unable to afford them. The insatiable love of extravagant and flamboyant attire, which cannot be supported would lead male students to stealing as well as encourage gangsterism. Female students can be lured into prostitution and even steal.
3. The Bible enjoins Christians to avoid ostentatious and extravagant dressing. Joseph Ayo Babalola University students should therefore focus more on internal and external adornment of purity and love beyond outward extravagant adornment.
4. Dressing to the place of worship for both male and female students must be formal whether they are native or European attire.
FEMALE STUDENTS DRESS CODE
1. Skirts must be long enough to cover the knees while seating or standing. If skirt is slit, the slit must not go above the knees.
2. Blouses must cover the breasts down to the abdomen. Blouses must have enough sleeves to cover the bra straps.
3. Transparent dresses that reveal underwear are not permitted outside halls of residences.
4. Tight fitting dresses are not allowed outside halls of residences.
5. Female students are not allowed to wear knicker burgers and trousers outside their halls of residences.
6. Christ Apostolic Church does not encourage the use of trinkets. Students are therefore encouraged to imbibe this culture.
7. Pyjamas, nightgowns and bathroom slippers are not allowed outside halls of residences.

9. Heavy make-ups of varying shades and colors are not permitted.
