Academic Dress Of The University Of Warwick

The academic and official dress of the University of Warwick dates originally from the mid-1960s, shortly after the university's foundation.

The official academic dress for officers and members of the University of Warwick is as follows.

    The scholar is that man who must take up into himself all the ability of the time, all the contributions of the past, all the hopes of the future. He must be an university of knowledges.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We give lovely parties that last through the night,
    I dress as a woman and scream with delight,
    We wake up at lunch time and find we’re still tight.
    What could be duller than that?
    Noël Coward (1899–1973)

    The 1990s, after the reign of terror of academic vandalism, will be a decade of restoration: restoration of meaning, value, beauty, pleasure, and emotion to art and restoration of art to its audience.
