Time capsule: messages from today's students and staff to be opened in 2045
"This time capsule commemorates the 2020 opening of the Chappell Family Nursing and Population Health Building. Inside the time capsule (sealed by a commemorative plaque) faculty and staff placed messages that will be shared with future faculty and nursing students in 2045, the 75th anniversary of TRU."
— Donna Murnaghan, Former Dean of Nursing
"It is exciting to think about what the School of Nursing will be like in 25 years when the time capsule is opened and the messages read. I want to thank Dr. Donna Murnaghan for her leadership and vision in making the Nursing Population and Health Building a reality — its strong foundation for the School of Nursing to grow and continue to excel."
