Remember in elementary school where they told you to take some of your favorite things so they can put it in a time capsule that will only be opened once you’ve graduated high school? (I don’t know if everyone done this, but I know my high school did) Well, good old UMass Lowell is doing the same thing.
Here is a brief article found on the schools website:
March 30, 2011 – March 30, 2011
Topping off of steel on the new Emerging Technology and Innovation Center combined with the opening of the Smith Hall Time Capsule and a Smith Hall Reunion. Come sign the final beam that will be placed atop the new ETIC. See it raised and witness the opening of the 1947 time capsule discovered during the demolition of Smith Hall and see items for a new time capsule for ETIC placed. Reception/reunion with hors d’oeuvres, drinks and an exhibit of historical photos in Alumni Hall follows.
3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Behind Lydon Library, North
RSVP to Jacqueline_Ledoux@uml.edu or 978-934-2236
Students were sent an email a few weeks back, asking if they had any ideas of what to put in the new time capsule. So if you were involved in that whole process, it would be a really good idea to go to the event. You would be a huge part of UMass Lowells history.
Here are some of the pictures of last years Ground Breaking ceremony. You can see how fast the construction is going for yourself! You might even some familiar faces. 😉
Have a brilliant week!
