Just goes to show that just because you are in college doesn't mean you are intelligent.

My son graduated from college last May. Wasn't unusual to see him any time of the year in shorts (I think they call the cargo shorts? The ones that go a little past the knee and have all kinds of pockets?), a t shirt, and sandals. Every now and then he said he'd break down and wear jeans, socks and shoes, but still a t shirt. lol

It does not depend on what you wear on the outside, its what you layer inside that makes all the difference. A parka with short sleeves is suitable for a high of 50 F (Typically means that lows are around freezing). The same person can wear a parka with thicker layers underneath in February, and be able to tolerate the winter.

FYI, I am from a steamy tropical climate where low temperatures rarely drop below 75 F. I never wore a sweatshirt till I joined Rutgers, and never saw snow till snowmegaddon 2010, when I was asked to shovel 33 inches of snow off my parents 2 car driveway without a snow blower before sunrise.

When I worked in a salon, we had a young reeceptionist who would wear flip flop style sandals in the winter (and in the snow). Her feet would look BLUE on occasion, but when asked if her feet were cold she would say NO. I think she didn't for the attention she got by people asking "aren't your feet cold?"

The manager finally told her she had to wear season appropriate footwear. She looked ridiculous.

I live in a seacoast community where the climate does not have wretched extremes, but December through mid-February are damp and chilly. It is not uncommon for adults to wear shorts for much of the year, but the high school kids are breaking them out a full month ahead of the adults.

And young Brit expats who tend kids' bars and have similar touristy type jobs tend to wear shorts all year round, even when their legs are blue...I think it is their version of "living the dream," or perhaps they are so fuelled up on booze and drugs they are oblivious to the weather.

True. Maybe they are there to find a husband?

I don't think this is a practice related to College Students...

Right. I actually thought of this thread this morning watching a man in jean shorts and a polo shirt walking his son to school. It was around 45 degrees. I was chilly in boots, tights, and a sweater and I'm much closer to college age than he was.
