Because BHDI recognizes that your choice of clothing and your manner of grooming are your own prerogatives, the college does not publish dress codes or standards.

However, since fashion is our world, the college does request that you dress appropriately and groom properly in a professional manner to respect our community and reflects favorably on the public image that BHDI endeavors to maintain.
