Student organizations have long been integral to the UNC experience, with more than 600 clubs, societies, and other groups in existence today.

On Tuesday, March 26, the University Archives will host “‘When I Was at UNC’: Preserving the Work and Legacy of Student Organizations through Documentation” at 5:30 p.m. in the UNC Student Union Room 3201.

The program will describe how student organizations can make their mark on Carolina permanent and ensure that their accomplishments are remembered by future generations.

It will also feature a display of manuscripts and photographs on the history of student organizations at UNC, scrapbooks from early fraternities, the original charter of the Campus YMCA, and old Yackety Yack yearbooks.

The event, sponsored by University Archives and Records Management Services and the Office of Student Activities and Organizations, will be presented by graduate students Carla Davis-Castro and Morgan Jones.

Students who have or know of materials relating to student organizations at UNC can also contact UNC Archivist Jay Gaidmore at (919) 962-6402 or
