BJU students tend to be attracted to one another. The students, who are eager to look for a Christian spouse, tend to find one within the fence. Dating rules at Bob Jones University are the strictest of any college campus. Couples are not allowed to hold hands, kiss, or have any type of sexual relationship. A majority of rebellious couples gets expelled from school for going off campus together. At first, new students are overwhelmed by the couples in their own little world. Soon, though, these new students get used to the scene, or they find their soulmate and join the gazing couples at Social Parlor. There are more girls than guys at school, and some guys tend to take advantage of the ratio.

Students dress very modestly because of the school’s strict dress code. Their hair is neat, shirts are pressed, and shoes are shiny. Girls are required to wear skirts that cover the knee, and guys have to wear dress pants and shirts that are pressed. Because of the strict rule, most students are not distracted by the opposite sex nor their clothing.

The good news is that wearing a tie became optional in 2010. In the afternoon, guys may change their dress shirts into collared shirts and neat pants. On Sundays, or for formal occasions, guys must wear dress pants, dress shirts, dress shoes, ties, and coats. Jeans are only allowed for recreation and work. Girls must wear skirts that cover their knees and shirts that are no lower than four fingers below their collarbone. Hose must be worn for Sunday morning services and for formal events. Jeans are allowed on Saturdays and for recreation and work.
