Biographical or Historical Information
Several Florida State University (FSU) campus offices were responsible for the publication and distribution of the FSU Activities Calendars, which document campus student events. During the late 1950s, for example, the calendars were published by the FSU Division of Publications. From the late 1960s through the 1990s, they were published by the Student Union, the Student Activities Office, the Leisure Program Office, and the Office of Public Relations and Special Events. As of 2007, the calendars are published on an FSU campus website by the Florida State University (FSU) Student Activities Center, a student organization that is part of the Oglesby Student Union.
Over the years, the calendar title changed. In the 1950s, it was called "Campus Calendar." From the 1960s until the late 20th Century, it became "Activities Schedule," "Garnet and Gold Guide," and finally "Activities Calendar" until the FSU Student Activities Center assumed responsibility for its publication in the early 21st Century.
