Time capsule to commemorate, remember past 100 years


A year of celebratory efforts for business education at Emory University continues through the summer as alumni are invited to submit items for a 100th Anniversary time capsule.

The #GBSTimeCapsule will be buried Oct. 26, 2019 as part of Centennial Alumni Weekend. Organizers request items that represent student experience. Alumni are encouraged to send in photos or other items beginning immediately.

Submissions can be emailed to timecapsule@emory.edu or mailed to:

Centennial Time Capsule
1123 Zonolite Road, Suite 22

Atlanta, GA 30306-2014

“What better way to celebrate history and share your Goizueta Journey with future alumni than a time capsule,” said Julie Barefoot (julie.barefoot@emory.edu), leader of the 100th Anniversary efforts. “We celebrated our birthday earlier this year, so the creation of a time capsule will enable alumni to be a tanglible part of this milestone via a photo or item reflecting their Goizueta Journey. A photo with a classmate during school and since graduation would be an ideal way to commemorate an alum’s Goizueta experience.”

The time capsule will be re-opened in 25 years.

In February 1919 the Dean of Emory College recommended the creation of a school of economics and business administration. The Board of Trustees approved the motion the same day.  In Fall 1919, the school began offering courses in economics, accounting, and business law. In 1994 the school was named in honor of Roberto C. Goizueta, the former chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company.

EDITOR’S NOTE: By sending items, submitters represent and warrant persons depicted in any photograph(s) consented to its creation and have no objection to submission for use as part of the Centennial Gala or the time capsule and related media.
