The SEAHO Archives are located on campus at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. SEAHO was founded in 1965 by professionals within the region who were seeking the type of networking, support and professional development that our regional and national associations have evolved to provide. The vision of these Student Affairs professionals is evident when you read the minutes from those inaugural meetings and study the founding documents. Clemson is honored to serve as host to 46 years of accumulated documents, photos and historical artifacts and is dedicated to capturing the origins of the association - as well as creating structures and archival standards that will serve the association for years to come.
