Student Research in the Archives

The Archives at North Central are rich with the documentary history of the college and the entire region. In the past, students and faculty have used the Archives collection to research subjects ranging from the civil rights movement to the Great Chicago Fire, from the college's Carnegie Library to its German language instruction, from a study of smiles in the yearbooks to the women's rights movement of the 1970s. And the possibilities for future research are nearly limitless: the Archives has materials that would support research on the role of women at North Central, war protests on campus, or the changing face of higher education, among many other possible topics. To learn more about the Archives and its collections, visit the Archives web site.
