Series 2: Student Activities and Organizations, 1940-1997
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
The Student Activities and Organizations series contains records of the many extracurricular activities initiated by Princeton undergraduates over the years. The records consist largely of charters and financial accounts submitted to the Office of the Dean of Students for approval.
The arrangement of the records at the time of transfer has been retained. Generally, records pertaining to student-led organizations are in several rough chronological groupings, and are filed alphabetically thereunder. Records pertaining to the Reserve Officers Training Corps, Eating Clubs, and Outdoor Action program are grouped together elsewhere in the series.
Additional transfers of records are expected from the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students indefinitely.
In the course of processing these records, two boxes of material documenting Neil Rudenstine's courses and research in the English Department were separated and removed to the Department of English Records.
