Time Capsule

The Student Government Association at the University of Texas-Pan American invites you to capture a moment in time. What better way to capture a moment in time than with a time capsule! Yes, you read that right! The Student Government Association is currently working on the time capsule project, which is set to be completed in the fall of 2014. In case you are wondering what we are doing, we would like to give you a brief glimpse of this exciting journey we embarked on in the spring of 2014. First, we started by creating an ad-hoc committee for the time capsule, then the committee began the research needed to bring this project to life. The committee did its research on what items can be included in the time capsule, where we could purchase a time capsule (Yes, there are places that make them!!!), then we purchased the time capsule, and we are currently working on a marketing campaign alongside the Public Relations committee in the Student Government Association. We want our current student and faculty to be part of this project, after all, this is for you all. As we move forward into becoming UTRGV, we want our bronc family to share with us and the university the memories they have made here at UTPA. The time capsule will be closed in the fall of 2014 to be opened in 2040. Semper Porro.
