College Dedicates Time Capsule
To celebrate the culmination of the College’s 5th Year, Northeast Lakeview College dedicated a Time Capsule on April 5.
The time capsule idea was proposed by the college’s anthropology student group. Northeast Lakeview College dedicated two time capsules; a large one that will be opened in 20 years on NLC’s 25th anniversary and a smaller one to be opened on the College’s 100th anniversary. “Filled with college and student artifacts and current institutional memorabilia, the time capsules represent 5 years of educational excellence and the possibilities that Northeast Lakeview College has brought to northeast Bexar County and surrounding areas,” says Dr. Eric Reno, NLC president. As part of the celebration, Northeast Lakeview College recognized its milestones over the past five years.
The ceremony took place at the Flag Pole circle, the site where the time capsule will be buried later this summer. Additionally, the celebration took place on April 5 a significant date for Northeast Lakeview College. The College celebrated its groundbreaking for its Kitty Hawk campus on April 5, 2007.
Immediately follow the ceremony, attendees were able to view items submitted for inclusion into the time capsule and attendees also received a college commemorative item.
Some unique artifacts submitted to the time capsule include a copy of a cursive lesson, which is no longer taught in schools, as well as a college hard copy book list at current bookstore prices and today’s tuition rates. View more photos from the Dedication Ceremony.
