Good evening brothers and sisters, I'm just wondering if its a common thing at uni for students to wear cultural/religious clothes at uni,when I watch the promo videos on youtube everyone seems to dress in hoodies and t shirts,or in other words adhering to western fashions, I am a Rastafarian, my sect is called the Boboshanti or EABIC and we wear robes and turbans, so we look similar to sikhs and muslims,we wear red,gold and green and in general bright colours. We stick out wherever we go,I'm just wondering how uni students tend to take To people who dress differently,everyone supposedly is trying to fit it in,so pressumably anyone who exists outside of 'normality' may be rejected or avoided. So yh if you are someone who has witnessed this sort of situation or are someone who dresses differently from everyone I would like to know how people react etc, Thankyou

To be honest I don't think it makes much difference what you wear compared to other prole. At uni, no one really cares how other people dress and if they do then they wouldn't really be the people that you'd want to hang out with/ be friends with in the first place.
I wear a hijab and I'm the only hijabi on my degree but I don't get treated any differently than anyone else because most people tend to just judge me on my character.
So don't worry OP, you'll be fine no matter what you wear.

I don't personally care for it, it doesn't bug me but there will always be people who will judge you for it just as there are still racists and sexists in this world. Nothing can change that. Just ignore it. Don't let it bug you.
