Alumni’s Booming Bowtie Business

May 3rd, 2012

"Spend any amount of time at Samford University, and it quickly becomes obvious that a good number of the students behind the gates of Lakeshore Drive lean towards the preppy side of the sartorial spectrum.

Barnes graduated in 2006 and Snyder followed in 2007. They met during fraternity rush week. Both were members of Sigma Chi, where Barnes was Snyder’s big brother.
