Oct. 3, 2012 — Morehead State University’s Student Government Association, in conjunction with Student Activities, Inclusion and Leadership Development, is assembling materials for a 50-year time capsule, to be opened in 2062.
All items are needed by Wednesday, Oct. 31.
Members of the campus community are invited to write letters to the future that make predictions as to what Morehead and Morehead State might look like in 2062, or reflect on the state of affairs in 2012 (providing the future a snapshot of what life is like today). When considering what to write, consider what information about 1962 you might like to read. What predictions would they have made about 2012?
Email your missives to Mike Esposito, email@example.com, to be printed on acid free paper, which will last more than 50 years.
Faculty and staff can print their own message on MSU stationery (which is acid free) and send it to Box 797. All messages should be kept to one page.
SGA has a questionnaire for students to tell their grandchildren what their favorite things were in 2012.
If someone is interested in providing a new, unused MSU shirt (100 percent cotton), small MSU “artifacts” or other items for the capsule, drop them off at Student Activities, 204 Adron Doran University Center.
Rare or limited edition items from 2012 may be included, (i.e. baseball card, rare coin/currency). Space in the capsule is limited and unused items will be returned.
Photographs should be professionally processed black-and-white prints on fiber-based paper suitable for archiving. Items should not be laminated or dry-mounted.
Thing not include: Electronic media is problematic finding a machine to play a CD or DVD in 2062; perishable items; anything with ink; batteries inside; anything made with wool, silk and nylon fabrics; ammunition; tapes or adhesives; and nothing with staples or paper clips.
SGA and SAIL hopes the campus community will enjoy participating in this program.
