Wow, if I knew how much wearing a tie with flipflops and cargo shorts offended people (5 pages of people saying they hate college students seemingly on the basis of their dress.)... It's just surprising. When I lived in the dorms, I would wake up 5 or 10 minutes before class, walk there in my PJs for my 7am classes, then come back and go back to bed. Now I actually dress up for class (meaning I actually think about what one or two shirts I will be wearing on the basis of what coordinates well, not what doesn't smell too horribly). I agree with Shoreman, we're just screwing around - it sounds absolutely and utterly paranoid to think that people dress a certain way to piss off the older people. That's rediculous. I'm glad to say that I love college, I love hanging out with college students, and the pseudo-freedom of working a part time job and going to school with classmates and faculty who actually care about their jobs and education. I look forward to travelling and even greater freedom that awaits post-college years, but I'm only dedicating 50% of my willpower to preparing for the future. The other 50% is for having a good time, as good times are readily available (especially in San Diego, the city with the highest concentration of college students in the country).
