The Social Activities Committee (SAC), formerly known as the Student Activities Committee, is a body of students whose primary function is to plan, organize, and oversee the social activities for the student body of Hope College. SAC, officially organized in 1971 by Dean of Students Robert De Young, is one of the cornerstone student groups on campus and is perceived by students as providing innovative programs, opportunities to establish relationships, and fun. In 2004 and 2006, SAC was awarded the Excellence in Programming Award by the National Association of Campus Activities. This award reflects the passion, creativity, and ability of the Hope College student. The committee consists of the student directors, committee chairpersons, and assistant chairpersons who meet on a weekly basis to discuss and create activities for the student body. The committee will develop skills in leadership, creativity, and event planning, not to mention provide the opportunity to work with exciting, and sometimes famous entertainers, receive free admission to events, and the pleasure of learning the ins and outs of event management. The collection includes budgets, newspaper clippings about the organization and activities, posters of musical and comedy groups hosted by SAC (see Hope College Collections Oversized Drawer for events posters), calendars of events, organizational records including bylaws and brochure, and minutes.
