About half of my students were dressed decently nicely--clean, mostly whole, clothes.
A few came in dirty-looking, with clothes ripped or stained, or otherwise unkempt. Several had visible tattoos. A few had multiple piercings in their faces.
A few of the girls (maybe three out of ten girls per class) came in with very little actually covered, to the point where I wanted to remind them that, while that is a valid career choice, it might not be a good idea to advertise on campus.
The rest? Just looked like standard high school students: tee shirts, jeans or shorts, and tennies or flip-flops.
Majors leaned heavily toward the practical--dental hygiene, STEM, business, etc., with a few undecided, and a few teacher ed (most of whom are a couple tacos shy of a combo plate)--and most had a plan for what they wanted to do with it.
I feel hopeful.
