UNIFORM

Uniformity of clothing is believed to lead to uniform behavior & uniform behavior is supposed to lead to conformity of thought”. In a college there are students from different regions of India but are united in a same place, for same purpose. So, dressing in uniform shows ethics & keeps students far away from comparison. As we all are in a professional course during our graduation, our uniform gives a sensation of professional behavior, respect & it also develops identity of a group. The final excuse for having a uniform is that it gives students a sense of pride in their institute & we also know it very well that clothing is a powerful form of non-verbal communication, conveying socio-economic status , occupational role & even the authority & power vested in that role.
