Overview and metadata sections

[From Lydia Guertin, Class of 2024] The Outskirts are a Haverford-specific women and non-binary a cappella group, although they encourage anyone that feels at ease with the demographics of the group to audition. The Outskirts perform at least twice a semester, once with another Bi-Co group and once alone, along with two other collaborative performances with Haverford's a cappella community. They also enjoy regularly touring, hosting outside groups, busking, and fundraising for members of the group and the larger community. The Outskirts were founded in 2001, and accept new members once a year through open auditions for new "miniskirts." (March 13, 2022)

The collection contains a description of the history of Outskirts written by Karel Chan in 2004.

This collection also consists of various digital documents from the group. Material contained within the collection includes audition sheets, as well as the group handbook, and documents related to previous and new songs in 2017.

The materials are arranged chronologically.
