About New College Student Association Archives

 

This collection contains digitized materials from the New College Student Alliance (NCSA) Archives, a physical collection in New College of Florida’s Hamilton Center, located in the Old Mail Room. The Archives are student-organized and student-run; their maintenance was part of a tutorial every semester. Since then, it's lived on as an NCSA TA position.

The materials in the Archives pertain exclusively to New College student life, such as NCSA or SAC meeting minutes or student publications like New Collage. For example, our icon is an infamous artifact from the Archives: an old banana from a former archivist’s lunch, dubiously from the 1970s. This and many more artifacts demonstrate the unique and eccentric culture of New College that the Archives hope to preserve.

The NCSA Archives Digital Repository is incomplete and in progress. If you would like to know what the physical archives contain, you may access the finding aids here and here.
