I am thinking about start cycling other than just riding it around school. I want to make myself look professional. Do you have any advice for me? I don't really know what kind of outfit is suitable for college students. I think I would love to get a shirt or a tank and a bicycle shorts. Thank you in advance. Does bikers have special shoes, too?

It's not really clear what you mean by look professional.
If you mean a professional cyclist, then a cycling outfit is the way to go. They are designed to be comfortable for cycling, and to keep your leg muscles warm.
But if you mean professional as in office worker professional, then that's a problem that many of us struggle with.
Firstly, how far do you ride? The further you ride, the more likely it is that your clothes will be sweaty and you'll want to change. If it's not that far, in warm weather many biking students here wear long baggy shorts and matching tops, like skateboarders. But you wouldn't say they look professional.
The other way to go is to change clothes. Depending on the size of your campus and how modern it is, it likely has a decent gym with showers, and maybe locker facilities. Many students take gym membership to access those facilities; you can keep a change of clothes, and a towel there, and shower and change before classes.
