This is to inform the public and students of Benue State University (BSU) that the Management of the Benue State University (BSU) has released the List of acceptable and unacceptable Dress Codes for Male and Female Students in the University Campuses and Environments.
Management announced the implementation of its policy on Dress Code for her students with effect from the beginning of the 2018/2019 Academic Session which is in its 4th week.
While hinting on the plan to introduce an acceptable Dress Code for students of the University, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Msugh Moses Kembe said it was intended to instil discipline, restore self-esteem and dignity in students of the University.
