University Archives, together with the Office of Student Activities & Organizations presents:
When I Was at UNC: Documenting the Legacy of Student Organizations
Next Tuesday, March 26, from 5:30-7:30pm, please join us in Student Union room 3201 to learn how student organizations can make their mark on Carolina permanent. Even though you graduate and leave UNC, the work you do through student organizations will remain vital to future students.
We will present strategies on creating and organizing your group’s records, passing those records on to your successors, and finally depositing them in University Archives.
We will also have a small exhibition of materials from student organizations that are currently held in the archives, including materials from the Campus Y, the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies, and the Black Student Movement.
We’ll have pizza and drinks and a chance to ask questions about preserving your org’s history. In the meantime, you can check out the University Archives’ webpage “Ten Tips for Preserving Your Organization’s History,” which has helpful information on documenting the work of your student group and preserving those documents for future students.
