The University of Jos on Friday matriculated 8,000 fresh students with its vice chancellor, Sebastian Maimako, warning the freshers against indecent dressing.
Mr Maimako, who said 35,124 candidates applied for admission into the institution, advised the new students to concentrate on their studies and shun negative tendencies.
He said the school had become famous for academic excellence and urged the students to strive to sustain and promote that attribute.
Mr Maimako advised the students to join lawful associations like the Students Union Government and shun unlawful ones.
He also advised them to engage in meaningful activities that would promote the name of the school.
On the dress code, he warned against indecent outfits that expose body parts and infuriate the sensibilities of others, saying that anyone caught would be sanctioned.
He also advised them to use the social media for positive reasons “and not the other way round”.
Mr Maimako assured that the university management would work round the clock to ensure security of lives and property, but advised the students to be security conscious.
