Hamilton Smith Hall Re-opening to Include Time Capsule Highlighting Building History and Faculty
The English Department, ESL Institute, and Philosophy Department are conducting a survey to collect responses for a time capsule that will be sealed up within the renovated Hamilton Smith Hall for the next 100 years. Current and former faculty, Undergraduate and Graduate level students, UNH alumni and Seacoast area residents are encouraged to consider submitting memories of the faculty, students and unique moments experienced within this iconic UNH building.
Submissions received will be printed out and included in the time capsule. A ceremony marking the installment of the capsule will take place during the official A“grand re-opening” of Hamilton Smith Hall during Homecoming Weekend this fall. Additional details about this event will be circulated in the coming months. A link to the online survey is available at the bottom of this article.

Hamilton Smith Hall is undergoing a major renovation to be completed in summer 2017. The College of Liberal Arts is preparing a time capsule that will be interred within Hamilton Smith Hall at a grand re-opening, held on Friday, 9/22 during Homecoming Weekend. UNH plans to open the time capsule in 100 years.
We are collecting memories for inclusion in the time capsule until Friday, September 8th, 2017. Memories from faculty (current and emeritus) and students (current and alumni) will be included in the time capsule. If you have a memento of your time in Hamilton Smith Hall - a photo, catalog, newspaper clipping, etc. - that is specific to you or the department(s) housed in this building, we encourage you to contact us about possible inclusion of these items. Please note that we are somewhat restricted by the size of the capsule and can only include certain types of materials. Contact Carla Cannizzaro (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a memento you'd like to submit for inclusion in the capsule.
