The North Carolina State University, Student and Other Organizations, Alpha Epsilon Rho Records contain a meeting flyer, photographs, a scrapbook, and The Telecommunicator newsletter. Materials range in date from 1980 to 1985 but many are undated.

Alpha Epsilon Rho, or "AERho," was formed in the 1940s as the National Honorary Broadcasting Society. The NC State University Chapter was founded in 1980 but appears to have become defunct around 1990. The chapter was established when a group of interested students met with Professor Ed Funkhouser and contacted the national office for application materials. An initiation ceremony was performed on February 25, 1980. The Society's purpose was to support and nurture students of broadcasting while offering opportunities for establishing relationships with professional broadcasters. Any student could join, as long as they met the GPA requirements and showed an interest in broadcasting.

Over time, Alpha Epsilon Rho has evolved to become the National Broadcasting Society/AERho, also known as the National Electronic Media Association. It has expanded to include digital media, in addition to more traditional media such as television, radio, and film.
