Buried in the cornerstone of Gary M. Sumers Recreation Center, a time capsule placed Nov. 7 contains a 2015 course catalog; a piece of the Francis Gym floor; an original Red Alert shirt; and a letter from Athletic Director Emeritus John Schael to the athletic director of 2065.
The Washington University community is invited to create a time capsule for the cornerstone of the Gary M. Sumers Recreation Center, set to open late next summer. When it is opened in 2065, this time capsule hopefully will fare better than its predecessor – the recently recovered 1902 time capsule from Francis Gymnasium that sustained water damage.
As construction continues on the new Sumers Recreation Center, WUSTL students, employees and visitors are asked to note changes to area walkways and roadways. The new center will debut in August 2016.
