UNC class of 1988 'dig up' the past
Posted November 8, 2013
Chapel Hill, N.C. — The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Class of 1988 dug up a piece of its past on Friday afternoon, unearthing a time capsule buried 25 years ago.
As dozens of people watched, UNC’s Ground Services and Facilities Services began digging up the capsule, which was enclosed in a beer keg.
The time capsule project was led by 1988 senior Eric Chilton.
“I remember putting in all of my ticket stubs from concerts and football and basketball games from 1984 to 1988,” said Chilton in a university statement.
Chilton and Anne Davidson, 1988 senior class president, unveiled the time capsule’s contents, which included: a UNC student ID card, a cup from Bub O’Malley’s, copies of Sports Illustrated and more. After the event, the items were taken to Wilson Library for display through the weekend as part of this year’s homecoming festivities.
