During a special event on Jan. 9, the college community gathered to celebrate the installation of a new time capsule to be opened in 25 years. The time capsule was installed behind a plaque inside Pierce College Puyallup’s Gaspard Administration Building Atrium.
Chancellor Michele Johnson showed the audience a number of items to be included in the time capsule, such as photographs of the college’s executive team and student leadership teams from each campus. Other items included are a collection of predictions for the future, written by students throughout the district.
Copies of articles about Pierce College published in both local and national publications were also included, such as the Seattle Times, Tacoma’s News Tribune, and even Time Magazine.
The Pierce College community 25 years from now will also have the opportunity to read through a current local newspaper, and have fun with the technology and trends of today, such as an old iPhone, a compact disc and the ever-popular fidget spinner!
