The records of the North Carolina State University Arab Club contain their constitution, correspondence, information on events and activities the Club hosted, records of Club officers and members, as well as scrapbooks and photograph albums assembled by the Club.

The Arab Club was established in or before 1958 at North Carolina State College (University) to act as a social organization for students of Arab background, as well as to promote Arab culture and heritage throughout campus at various events and activites. The Arab Club appears to have changed their name frequently, being known alternately as the Arab Students' Organization of Raleigh, the Arab Student Organization, the Arab Student Club, the Organization of Arab Students, and the Arab Student Association, though the name "Arab Club" is the name they most commonly used. The Arab Club remained active at NC State at least through 1989, though appears to have since disbanded.
