Time to eat

Missouri S&T has a long and proud history of eating clubs, dating back to the 1890s when the current Chancellor’s Residence served as a student housing and dining club meeting area. A clock hung in the Campus Club’s dining area for many years. From 1964 to 1965, the group met at 202 W. 10th St. in Rolla. The Campus Club later moved to 1304 Pine St. It continued to meet into the late 1970s as one of the last eating clubs at S&T. Donate your Rolla relics to S&T’s Archives by visiting archives.mst.edu or calling 573-341-6954.
