Records of these early student organizations reflect life at the College in the first half of the 20th century. It is unclear who exactly sponsored the organizations; no dean of students is listed in early catalogues. They were, however, under the auspices of the College and did not operate entirely independently.
Organizations documented include the Athletic Association of Elmhurst Junior College and Academy, Christlichen Yunglings Verein, Glee Club, Meusch Verein (Reading Society), Polyhymnia, Schiller-Verein, Student Union, and the YMCA.
Records are arranged in alphabetical order.
