    that is the question we all want to know! They say it gives you discipline and it makes it easier for us, but most of us say it's a load of crap. And no open toed shoes is just as bad. We pay for these uniforms and we have to wear them monday thru thursday for no apparent reason. Can't xavier just do away with it?

    It is a way of telling the other people on Aruba what a maroon you are (translate - you are a loser).

    The rest of the people then know to charge you two times as much for anything you care to purchase. Perhaps they also earn more money making you wear a uniform so you look like a little kruppenheimer...

    I call it like I see it. I am not paid by ValueMD or any school. Nor do I recruit for any school.

    Look at the pictures on their website. I think St Martinius does the uniform thing also.

    It also tells the locals it's ok to sit down at your table while you're eating a sandwich in a restaurant, and ask you how to get their kid into med school.

    Or to make you an easy target for Immigration officers fishing for illegals.

    Or to identify you to crackhead panhandlers as a rich kid from up North who probably carries a lot of cash.

    Or to aggravate cashiers who translate your grocery bill to dollars when you always pay in florins.

    Or to condition a mindset of capitulation to irrational authority.

    fossildoc, You have hit the correct!!!


    Yes I must add, it makes us perfect targets so when we go back to the states. We will have our placed cleaned out by robbers and give them the opportunity to rob us on our next visit back home. to get them more supplies.

    Been a dean I would rather pay attention to the problem with immigration, absence of library, virus infected computers, shortage of professors, overpriced housing, etc... There is long list what can be improved...
