Scope and Contents note

The Office of Campus Life records collection includes materials pertaining to the activities of the organization and its sub-group which administers student organizations as a whole. The collection includes general records such as clippings, news releases, and administrative records, as well as grouped materials relating to specific events and program. Many of these files include some visual materials, photographs, and memorabilia.

The Office of Campus Life records have been divided into four series:  Programs,  Clippings,  Communications, and  Student Organizations. The entire collection covers a range from 1934 to 2012, though the bulk of the materials is dated from 1960 to 1998.

The Programs series includes materials related to the planning and execution of programs and events. Several major and recurring events have been separated into their own files in the "Events" subseries. This series also includes a small collection of memorabilia, mostly comprised of buttons.

The Clippings series includes newspaper clippings and web print-outs from 1970 to 2012. The Communications series includes materials published and distributed by the Office of Campus Life, especially news releases, pamphlets, and student guides. This series also includes posters which have been filed in Box 4 to accommodate their larger size.

The Student Organizations series includes materials related to the establishment and recognition of student organizations, and includes a subseries of directories. Records pertaining to specific student groups are organized into their own collection of materials and are not included in this collection.
