It was 100 years ago but you can get involved today. Here's what's happening:
Great Trek Commemoration
On October 28th at 1PM gather outside at the Great Trek Cairn to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Great Trek. The event will start with a Musqueam Territorial Welcome followed by guest speakers. We're asking everyone to show your UBC spirit and wear something blue to the event.
Time Capsule Ceremony
Following the Great Trek ceremony we will open up the 50-year Great Trek Time Capsule. Buried in October 1972 during the 50th anniversary the capsule is sure to be full of, uh... something. Whatever is inside it's going to be a surprise you won't want to miss.
We will also be filling the next 50 year time capsule as well.
Write a Time Capsule Letter
What do you want to say to yourself or to students in 2072? We're collecting letters to go into the new time capsule which will be buried for another 50 years. If you would like to contribute a letter for the new time capsule you can drop off a letter at the AMS Office in the Nest (3rd Floor, 6133 University Blvd) or submit a letter online here.
Take a trip through the last century of student life at the Great Trek Photo Exhibit on at the Hatch Gallery from Oct 25 to Nov 4.
