Time capsule to collect old relics from Allen College


A local college is preserving a bit of history.

Allen College in Waterloo had a time capsule ceremony Friday afternoon.

The capsule will be placed within a new building during its groundbreaking later this year.

Alumni were invited to bring in old relics from their time at Allen including objects, pictures and even grades and papers from their student days.

"Some of them are pretty amusing. As you look at those documents, I expect 100 years from now when they open the capsule, or even 50 years from now, they'll find the documents pretty funny even though back then at the present time, they didn't seem so amusing," said Allen College Chancellor Jerry Durham.

The time capsule will not be sealed until the burial allowing more alumni to add to it.

The scheduled opening will be 100 years from now.
