LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—A glimpse at the current state of Western Technical College was sealed on Monday in a time capsule.
Monday marked the 100 year anniversary of the first day of classes at the college.
Items in the time capsule include Vision 2020 document, a Blackberry cell phone and a student handbook.
The time capsule has been a tradition at Western, every 50 years it's reopened.
Items in the last time capsule included pamphlets on the different programs western offered at the time; one of those courses was penmanship.
"Well I think it's always great that we track history and remember where our roots come from. To be a successful college for 100 years is a great thing," Joanne Sandvick, Secretary, Western District Board said.
The time capsule will be opened again in 2062.
