Centennial Time Capsule Buried

In recognition of the UDM Law centennial, the UDM Law community recently came together in a celebration of past accomplishments and a reaffirmation of commitment to serving the community for another 100 years. 

timecapsuleOn October 1, 2012, the School’s 100th birthday, a stainless steel time capsule was interred on the UDM Law grounds.  The time capsule is intended for exhumation in 50 years. The time capsule contains artifacts that are intended to provide future generations with an in-depth perspective on life in 2012, not only at UDM Law but also in a broader context of regional and international perspectives.

The time capsule contents were contributed by many individuals and several school departments. Carefully packaged into the watertight container were samples of UDM Law publications along with photos of students and the school, interspersed with newspapers, local restaurant menus, a dollar bill, and an incandescent light bulb. The final item was an “Open Me First” envelope with a letter to our future friends.

At the time capsule interment ceremony, Dean Semple spoke about the significance of the centennial  and led the group in a toast to our continued success. After the time capsule was lowered into the ground, everyone present had the opportunity to drop a shovel full of dirt on top of the container and then enjoy refreshments while savoring the experience of being a participant in something for the ages.
