Students at BYU-Idaho might want to think twice before taking a test in their skinny jeans.
Earlier this week there were reports going around that the campus' Testing Center denied a student entry because her jeans were "too tight".
The center's fight against the popular denim started last month when they posted a flier on the door reminding students about the CES Dress and Grooming standards they agreed to honor, adding at the bottom:
"If your clothing or attitude does not meet the commitments you have made to live the Honor Code, will you please go home and prayerfully visit with your Father in Heaven and recommit yourself to be a true disciple and abide by the Honor Code that defines your commitment to be a disciple."
The center decided the first version was too harsh, so they softened it up with:
"If you don’t understand the Dress and Grooming standards, we invite you to go to the Lord ‘and ask in faith, nothing wavering’ for approval of the clothing you wear. The Spirit will tell you whether what you are wearing is appropriate or not."
Both signs caused students to complain and the school eventually told the Testing Center to calm down.
Public Relations Manager Andy Cargal explained:
"We don’t have a policy against skinny jeans. One department on campus took our honor code and they interpreted it in their own way. University officials went to the Test Center, educated them, and the signs were taken down."
