What to wear at ASW?
« on: March 18, 2007, 04:46:12 PM »
I'm going to an ASW next week.  Whats the appropriate dress code? Are jeans okay, or should I go with business casual.  I want to be comfortable but I also don't want to come off as a slob.

I would wear a blazer, jeans, an oxford and heels- that way I'm casual but still a little polished.

I'm going to wear jeans and a polo, like I usually do. There is no reason to wear anything more.

I'll wear jeans, a T-shirt, and a jacket, and shoes.  Nothing fancy.

I am the kind of person that does better if I am by myself because if I take someone I will spend the entire time talking to them instead of anyone else.

I'm sure they all differ, but the recent one I went to at USD had about 120 people or so.  I'd say a decent mix of people who brought parents, brought SO and came alone.  I brought my dad.

I wore jeans and a polo shirt.  I'd say 80% of the admitted students were similarly dressed.  The others were a mix of dressier and even more casual.

I wouldn't bring anyone unless they are paying for your tuition.

I took my boyfriend and my mom and it didn't interfere with anything. It actually helped.

I plan on going alone.  I know that if I bring my mom, she'll be distracting me with how everything looks (facilities, surroundings, etc.).   ::)
