In celebration of UW-Green Bay’s 50th Anniversary, a cornerstone, which was ceremonially placed in conjunction with 1968 construction of the first campus buildings, was opened in summer of 2015. Contents were intended to document the beginnings of the University in 1965 and its community partnerships. Items ranged from early campus plans regarding layout and curriculum as well as a directory of local government offices; area newspapers; and an original souvenir plate commemorating Super Bowl I and the win of the Green Bay Packers in 1967.
Looking forward to UW-Green Bay’s 100th anniversary, the University is creating a new time capsule to be opened in 2065 telling the story of UWGB today. The campus community is invited to help choose the contents for this capsule which is planned to be about the size of a small file cabinet (2′ x 2′ x 4′). Planners are seeking input and suggestions of specific objects to be included. To make suggestions, complete the Fifty and Forward: UWGB Time Capsule 2065 survey by Sunday, March 13, 2016. From the submissions, a committee of students, faculty and staff will choose the objects to be placed in the time capsule.
