Liberty University loosens dress code

Rev. Tinkywinky’s letting students go hog wild. Tinky’s handbag optional.

What’s next? Sex? Keg parties?

Capri pants and flip-flops will be fine in class but shorts will remain forbidden as school starts next week at Liberty University, the college founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell.

Students were notified of the more relaxed campus dress code by e-mail. As recently as five years ago, men were required to wear ties at the university and women had to wear long skirts or dresses. “I am thrilled, because flip-flops and jeans are my favorite attire,” said student Grace Burns.

The code requires “neat jeans” — no holes or patches. Shorts “are never acceptable” in the classroom, though the ban is eased for the dining hall and academic buildings after 4:30 p.m. Shorts must be mid-thigh length or longer.
