Taipei, June 17 (CNA) National Taiwan Normal University said on Saturday that it is “not appropriate” for students to wear flip-flops under their graduation gowns, after a photo showed one of its students dressed that way.

The controversy arose after a professor posted a photo from the university’s College of Sciences commencement ceremony on Friday showing a student on stage for the tassel-turning ceremony wearing flip-flops.

The professor lamented in his Facebook post that students today have become too casual and show little regard for how they dress.

The school issued a statement Saturday to stress that the commencement ceremony was a solemn occasion and that it was “not appropriate” to wear sandals or slippers under the graduation gown, which stands for honor.    [FULL  STORY]
