The Board of Trustees has approved new names for Griffin Halls North and South in honor of Frieda Parker Jefferson and Winifred Parker White. The Parker sisters were Purdue students in 1946 and were denied access to live in the residence hall system. The family appealed the decision and ultimately the sisters became the first Black students to live on campus. The halls will be renamed for each sister, Frieda Parker Hall (Parker North) and Winifred Parker Hall (Parker South), respectively.
