Archives Display: Student Life

Calling all Katies!

October is American Archives Month, and for this post we're asking your help in adding to the St. Kate's Archives and Special Collections. Do you want future St. Kate’s students to learn about your experience here on campus? YOU are what makes St. Catherine University and we want to include you in its history!

If you are part of a student club or organization, please help us preserve your group’s history by giving us flyers, posters, buttons, banners, meeting minutes, etc. We are also looking for handouts from campus events, workshops, and speeches you have attended, Residence Hall flyers about events within your building, playbills from on-campus concerts, plays, etc. Basically, anything that you think reflects your experience here at St. Kate’s! We know how busy you are--you can bring your collection to us anytime during the school year when it is convenient for you!

To recognize the variety of student life past and present, we are currently displaying photos and memorabilia of student groups and activities throughout the years. The display is located on the main level of the St. Paul Library, in the case in front of the video carrels. For more images of student life, you can also browse through our Digital Collections anytime.

Items on display include:
  • Students roasting marshmallows in a fireplace in the common room of Mendel Hall, 1942
  • Dolphin Club (Synchronized Swimmers) program, 1960s.
  • Residence Life newsletter, titled “On Campus”, 1985.
  • Chapstick from Senate with contact information on it, 2014.

If you have any questions about donating your student organization’s records and memorabilia, please let us know! For more information, visit the Archives online or in person in Room 62 of the Library, open Monday-Friday from 9:30-4:30.
