Scope and Content Note

The records of the North Carolina State University chapter of Abraxas, Inc. inclue meeting minutes, personnel and financial information, other administrative records, and topical files of pamphlets on issues including drug and alchohol use, pregnancy, suicide and depression, study habits, and general sexual matters. Materials range in date from 1971 to 1975.

Historical Note

The North Carolina State University chapter of Abraxas, Inc., was founded in 1972 to provide peer counseling, free of charge, to students on campus. Abraxas staff counseled students on a range of topics, including drug and alcohol use, interpersonal/relationship problems, pregnancy, suicide and depression, study habits, and general sexual matters. Counseling was done both in person and over the phone, and Abraxas also worked to distribute factual literature on these same topics around campus.

NCSU's chapter of Abraxas faced many difficulties while incorporated, including several semesters without staff, frequent reassignment of rooms and office to operate out of, and other general administrative setbacks. No records for Abraxas exist after 1975, indicating the chapter may have disbanded at that time, perhaps as a result of their recurring operating difficulties.
