Agency History Note: 

The Women's Student Government Association of Massachusetts Agricultural College was formed as the self-governing body for female students.  All female students were ipso facto members of the Association.  Its purpose was "to make each member feel her responsibility to herself, to the Association, and to the college; and to give each girl a conception of citizenship...."

Scope and Content Note:

Handbooks issued annually to female students by the WSGA included the constitution and by-laws of the Association and regulations governing residential housing and general personal conduct; information about female students' clubs and organizations at the college, including sororities.
