Abstract:

The Student Activities collection consists of materials produced by the respective branches of the Student Activities Office at Minnesota State University, Mankato and its predecessor institutions, beginning in 1903. The collection is divided into five series: General Student Activities Office Materials, IMPACT, Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs), Greek Life, and Non-Traditional Student Group. The collection contains promotional material from concerts, speakers, homecoming, etc. as well as materials from the Panhellenic council, Interfraternity Council and respective fraternities and sororities.

Historical Note:

The Student Activities collection spans a century of campus involvement, organizations, and events. The oldest materials are programs from recitals, concerts, and social gatherings of the Mankato State Normal School. The materials within the "IMPACT" series reflect the greatest consistent time span and highlight the shifts in programming and organizational structure. Here materials can be found that reflect the "Marie Bruce Student Activities Center" era, the Student Leadership Development and Service Learning (SLDSL) era and the shift from University Programs (UP) to the current IMPACT Team. The Greek Life series has less history, in scope, to offer but a great deal of information pertaining to the operational nature of both the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council beginning in the mid to late 60's. This collection also includes some of Marie Bruce's speeches and note cards as they pertain to the campus events and they provide great insight into the perspective of one of the founding leaders in this institutions Student Activities history.
