Name: Kennesaw Junior College. Woman's Club

Historical Note:

Officially organized on November 9, 1967, the Kennesaw Junior College Woman's Club was created "to promote sociability among its members and to further the aims of Kennesaw Junior College." Members were initially limited to the wives and widows of full-time faculty and administration, as well as the wives of retired faculty and administration. The wife of the president of the college was made an honorary member. Later, the wives of all faculty, administration, and staff were accepted as members, as well as all female faculty, administration, and staff. The wives of the University System of Georgia Chancellor and Board of Regents members were given honorary membership. The original by-laws and constitution were modeled on those of similar organizations at the Southern Technical Institute (now Southern Polytechnic State University) and the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The Woman's Club organized social events on campus and in the community, provided student emergency loans and scholarships, and sponsored speakers and programs. Club members also engaged in numerous fundraising activities to finance their programs. From existing documentation, it appears that the Woman's Club ceased operations in 1976 due to low meeting attendance.
