College Archives

About

Grove City College has a very rich history, and the main goal of the archives is to preserve the College’s 138 years in one central and safe location.

When Carnegie Alumni Center was renovated in 2009, an archive room was built to house the College’s historical documents, artifacts and memorabilia. In January of 2012, Hilary (Lewis '09) Walczak began working to organize, catalogue and preserve the College’s historical items. As the archive grows, so does the College’s history. The archive team is in the process of preserving, cataloguing and digitizing the collections for the present day use and for the future.

Current Projects

1. We are currently working to complete our Greek Hall (lower level of Carnegie Alumni Center) by building shadow box displays for each Greek organization present and past.
2. We are also in the midst of an ongoing Oral History project, where we've been busy interviewing alumni, faculty and staff from all generations to capture the history of the College through their memories.
3. Our digitization project is a major undertaking,but we are working diligently to save all important College documents in a digital format for easier research and long term preservation. Eventually, our hope is to have these historical items searchable online for the campus, alumni and researchers to use.
4. If you have any research questions for us, we also enjoy doing research for those seeking answers about their family history and connections to the College.
