Student Organization and Activity Records

From its early days as a junior college, Nicholls has had a rich history of student organizations and activities on campus. These groups reflect the interests, skills, and professional goals students have shared, as well as how the University has changed over time. Many of these groups have left behind records of their activities (such as scrapbooks, meeting minutes, membership lists, photographs, and more), which are available for use in the University Archives. 

The list below includes all the primary resources relating to student organizations (arranged alphabetically by group name) held by the Nicholls Archives. In addition to these resources, we maintain research files for each University organization with copies of information from issues of the La Pirogue yearbook. An exhibit of materials from student organization records is available online.
