The cover of the time capsule sits in the new student center on Thursday. The capsule will contain various items from MU departments and student organizations.
Various MU items are going to be placed in a time capsule in the new student center and sealed for 50 years. The time capsule is meant to show what it means to be an MU student in 2010.
A time capsule, placed in the 1991 addition to Laferre Hall, included mechanical pencils, a calculator and a VHS tape of campus life. According the the Savitar from that year, the items were meant to “leave engineering students of the future a trail of what is going on now.”
This report gives details of a time capsule under Sanborn Field, buried by the FFA in 1979 as part of the 50th anniversary celebration. Excavated during the organization’s 75th anniversary in 2003, it contained predictions for the future of agriculture and materials from various chapters and the state association.
