Student Handbooks and Datebooks
Scope and Contents
The collection contains student handbooks and datebooks for Harper College. The handbooks serve as a guide to the college with information on student services, academic requirements, college policies, campus facilities, the academic calendar and other topics related to student life. The datebooks are calendars with campus events listed accompanied by a directory of campus offices, information on student services, and helpful information designed for students. After the merger of the two publications in 1992, the handbook/datebook contains the regulations and policies governing student life at Harper College as well as the resources and activities available to students beyond the classroom.
