Dillard University Male Students Mark First Day of School by Wearing Suits

“When young men come to college, they have no idea what the image of a college man is, so I wanted their first image to be a man of honor,” says Jerome Bailey, Dillard’s SGA president, and the author of the idea. He adds that if students “are dressed professionally from the first day on, it will not be a fad or a phase, it will be the first and lasting impression.”

Students at Dillard University were challenged to set a standard of excellence by wearing suits on the first day of class last week.Students at Dillard University were challenged to set a standard of excellence by wearing suits on the first day of class last week.
