A Bit of History

The Barbershop carried on a campus tradition dating from 1912 when the college first employed two experienced barbers. In 1941, the West Campus shop kept six barbers and two shoeshine boys busy. It too changed with the times employing the first African American barber in 1969 and the first woman in 1972. The slogan "where friends meet for better service" remains true today as this part of "Main Street" continues in the same location.
