Sometimes the most influential moments in our lives and in our cultural histories begin with small, often unexpected conversations. On a university campus, many of us can attest to major ideas catching hold in the briefest moments - a quick conversation in the doorway between classes, a single sentence from a chapel speaker, a lingering question posed by a professor, an intentional or happenstance meeting over coffee. We are well aware of the power of conversations which carry across the lunch tables or dorm rooms or conference tables. It is for the very purpose of fostering these natural conversations that we have cultivated and maintained Barefoots Joe. In a university setting where ideas and implications are being readily explored, we find it important and necessary for all parties - students, faculty, and staff - to have a relaxed and welcoming place where these ideas may be further discussed, delineated, debated and defended.

To add to these conversations, we bring to campus music, film, and art that present an important voice in our society. We hope that, just as in the classroom, each event will lead to thoughtful discussion instead of simplistic forms of acceptance or rejection. Always, we aim to show hospitality and true dialogue with those we host on campus.

Behind the coffee counter, you will discover that we care a great deal about the products we serve to our patrons. Visit our menu page to learn about our coffee, teas, sauces, syrups, smoothies, sodas, and pastries.

Barefoots Team

Formerly the student lounge, Barefoots Joe coffee house was transformed after the 2008 tornado by a team of students who designed and implemented the renovations. Much of the space is run by the Barefoots Leadership Team which is a team of students who are given leadership opportunity in their area of study - business, music, art, film, public relations, etc.
