Rutgers University has a good reputation.
But the school’s apparel isn’t particularly great.
In fact, the school is so out of whack with the rest of the world that the University of Pennsylvania has named its athletic department after a shoe company, the university announced on Monday.
The school also has an apparel department with the world’s worst-designed socks, according to The Daily Caller.
In a new report, The Daily Dot says that Rutgers’ apparel department, which is staffed with the likes of Nike, Adidas, and Reebok, has no place for women, who have long struggled to get into the sport.
They’re told they’re not supposed to wear them, the Daily Dot reports.
When asked if this is a reflection of the university’s lack of support for women’s sports, a university spokesperson said, “it’s not, it’s the truth.”
It’s a sentiment that has been echoed by the Rutgers athletics department, and in a letter to the student newspaper, the athletics department said it was committed to improving its apparel department.
The department has been working on “enhancing our efforts” to make it “a better place for our female athletes and employees,” according to the letter.
The athletic department, the letter continued, “is a very important part of our community and our future success, and we want to ensure that all our students and alumni feel welcome and valued here at Rutgers.”
The letter also said that, for women to be “a part of the team,” they need to “take the time to wear our uniforms and gear, and that is a commitment that we continue to make.”
The Daily Mail also has a full breakdown of the problems the school has with its apparel.
The shoes that the students wear are often “overly narrow,” and the socks are poorly designed, the paper said.
The socks also come in the wrong sizes, with women in the US sizes 5-10 having to choose between wearing a 1.5 inch heel, or a 1 inch toe.
And when it comes to women wearing sports gear, there’s a lack of diversity, as men are represented on the field, the Times reported.
Women aren’t allowed to wear skirts and be seen with makeup in public.
The only women on the men’s team, the men, are required to wear the uniform, The Times reported, but the men don’t wear it.
The uniform, which has the same size as the men in the men on the football team, has the word “Rutgers” written across it.
And in the women’s team’s uniform, women are supposed to be wearing a black skirt, but they’re all in a pink or orange one.
That is not what Rutgers has been designed to be.
“The design of the uniform has been a source of great frustration for many women students,” the university wrote in its letter.
It added that, “We know there is much work to be done to address the issues and make the uniforms as accessible as possible for all students.”
It also said it’s committed to addressing “the issue of diversity in our student-athletes, coaches, staff and athletic staff.”
It is unclear why the Rutgers athletic department has not been working with the students on the issue of women wearing uniforms, The New York Times reported on Monday, but Rutgers has not made an official statement on the matter.
A Rutgers spokesman told The Daily Beast that it was “unrelated to any student-led effort to make women’s uniforms better.”
