A History Quickie: University of Arizona
In 1885, the University of Arizona was known as Arizona's "normal school" and not a university. Classes met for the first time in 1891 with only 32 students attending. They met in the Old Main building, which was the first building constructed on campus and is still used today. In 1928, the university's Dean of Woman stated that all women must wear stockings and cannot appear on campus in "abbreviated costumes".
