Time capsule for 2011
Lasallian community gathers signatures for posterity

More than a dozen 22' x 9’ canvasses will be placed around the campus for the Lasallian community to sign their names for posterity. The activity is part of De La Salle University-Manila’s preparations for its centennial celebrations in 2011.

Student organizations will set up booths to gather as much signatures as possible. Once filled up, the canvasses will be placed inside a stainless cylindrical time capsule, which will be buried near the St. La Salle statue at the Marian Quadrangle.

The canvasses will be seen around the campus starting today until August 24, the launching date of the centennial 10-year countdown.

The special ceremony will bring together representatives of the Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, and the student body.

The activity will be part of the August 24 launching, which will also signal the start of the fundraising campaign in commemoration of the University’s 100th year in the Philippines. The funds raised will be channeled to more scholarships, tuition subsidies, research projects, and community service to public schools.
