HISTORICAL NOTE

The Board of Control of Social Activities granted use of school buildings for social functions. Many of the petitions were from sororities and fraternities. Members consisted of both students and faculty. The Board of Control of Social Activities was active until 1937. The Board of Control of Campus Activities was in charge of permitting and funding not only social activities, but also religious activities, lectures and films, musical programs, etc.

According to its constitution, the Board of the Control of Public Meetings (initially called the Board of Administration) was created in order to efficiently coordinate programs and public events on the Augustana campus. The board consisted of President Andreen as well as four elected faculty members. Campus groups that planned public events such as Lyceum as well as the Boards of Control of Athletics or Literary Groups had to answer to the overseeing Board of the Control of Public Meetings.

The Augustana College and Theological Seminary Bulletins were posted to outline weekly events on campus. Events include various debate clubs, college faculty meetings, prayer meetings, choir concerts, or addresses from the president among other things. These bullets were originally catalogued in Augustana Institutions.
