The majority of the materials in the College Archives are searchable through Archives Space. The collection includes photos of campus life, student publications, alumni diaries, oral histories, and even items with unique stories such as a copy of The Nuremberg Chronicles, various freshman beanies, and a 1960s bowling pin.
