Scope and Contents

From the Record Group:

The Mount Holyoke College student organizations collection is composed of materials related to student groups since the mid 19th century to present. Student organizations were formed as a way for Mount Holyoke students to engage with one another outside of the classroom. Activities of the organizations included academic, cultural, social, religious, musical, recreational, and political. The types of material vary from club to club, but may include charters, flyers, photographs, posters, programs, articles, buttons, publications and meeting notes. The collection has some overlap with the Buildings and Grounds and Student Life records.
