I wonder what they wear at all women's schools.

I have friends who teach at all-women's schools and the dress is apparently similar, though more prevalent. When there are no boys in class to impress, the bedroom casual dress and hairstyle can extend to more than half the class.

I have a friend teaching (she's also an alumna) at one that just decided to go co-ed so you may have seen them in the news. They wear a lot of PJs according to her. Otherwise, it's the same as other schools.

I guess I have been spared the PJs to class trend as I have been teaching mainly afternoon and evening classes so far. I am scheduled to teach an 8:30am class next term so I'll keep an eye out for sleepwear in class... I am hoping it will only be a couple of keeners (out of 150) and I, if I can even make it that early

One semester (at a different school) I had an 8am class where a young woman showed up everyday wearing pajama bottoms and with a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee in tow. Of course, the better the students are the easier it is to accept their odd choice of dress. And those kids were amazing, so I didn't care.

I was at the mall yesterday and wandered into American Eagle where I noticed that they now have lounge pants labeled as "dorm pants".

I actually wish they'd had these when I was an undergrad. My outfit when I didn't want to take a shower was typically to pull a pair of sweatpants and a sweatshirt over the t-shirt and boxers in which I had slept and add a baseball hat. If the weather was warm enough, I would wear tennis shoes, but if there was snow on the ground, my Bean Hunting Boots were a better option.

As a grad student at ASU now, I have to admit that I can't complain about the attire of today's coeds. Sure wish they'd dressed like that when I was in school

Most faculty members in the 2 or 3 universities I go to dress OK (casual). If they teach law, they wear a suit. And I have seen an econ professor at a university in Paris who teaches in a formal academic gown. He has to be the only one of his kind.

Here is the US at University of the South both faculty and students wear black academic robes all the time. I hear the students pass theirs down to the new generation so some are very tattered. I don't know anyone else that wears them on a day-to-day basis. But part of me thinks it'd be cool.

It would be cool if you can pledge Gryffindor while attending

Now, that's something I simply have never ever seen considered possible in France. Even in the few school that have a campus in the American sense.

Actually, I think that'd be cool too. But it's very different when it's a common rule for everybody at the university, that lone guy just comes out as costumey.

from the b-movies i've been watching, something like this:

In the Victorian era, all Oxford students had to wear academic robes. The sons of peers were permitted to wear a golden tassel -- and so it was very obvious who was titled and who was not. At my school it would be as if certain students were permitted to wear a golden sombrero.

I suspect there are many more pillow fights and car washes at all-womens schools too, based on this.

If we put our best scientific minds to the task I am confident that we can devise a way to combine those two activities.
