Collection Overview

Title: Student Activities, 1899+

Predominant Dates:1940-2010

ID: RHC/UA/35/

Extent: 24.0 Linear Feet

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Student Activities collection documents campus life from 1899 to the present.  The records are strongest in the post World War II period and weakest in the decade of the 1930's.  The collection has been organized into six series: 1 - Student Affairs Committee Records (1901-2010); 2 - Organizations and Annual Activities (1899-2005); 3 - Homecoming (1950-1974); 4 - Religious Life (1901-1981); 5 - Student Protests and Demonstrations (1967-1977); and 6 - Commencement and Class Programs; Photographs (1900-1979).

Several series give good insight into such annual events as May Fete (later Springfest), Homecoming, Winter Carnival, and Stunt Night during the 1950's through 1970's, and on the period of campus unrest, 1968-1972.  Over one hundred clubs or activities are documented in this collection and the researcher should check the container list below, or the Student Organization Index [available at the Reference Desk], for a specific organization.

Researchers should also check related collections in the archives, especially Sorority Records, Fraternity Records, Student Association Records, Intercollegiate Athletics, Student Publications, and Student Housing Records.  The Northern Star/Publication Index will also lead to information on specific groups or activities
