The Louisburg College Board of Trustees approved the implementation of a student dress code beginning with the fall 2008 academic term.

Louisburg College understands and fully supports students' right to self-expression. The College also has an obligation to create a living and learning environment where all members of the community are comfortable and not offended by inappropriate dress. The dress code is designed to provide appropriate guidelines so that all students may dress in a manner that is respectful of themselves and the community.

The policy states that the following standards must be adhered to by all members of the campus community:

  • Dress that is neat, modest and casual is the minimum requirement at all times in all public areas.
  • Hats, caps, do-rags, and other headgear must be removed when in classrooms, offices and the dining hall.
  • "Baggy" pants or sloppy dress will not be permitted at anytime.
  • Clothing that is provocative or contains obscene messages or messages that are contrary to the mission of the college will not be permitted.
