Virtual Memory Walk - Time Capsule

Memory Walk has been a commencement tradition since 1912. Each year, a stone representing the graduating class is laid in the sidewalk that runs parallel to the facade of Old Main, Western’s first building. Beneath each of these class stones lie time capsules. During our virtual ceremony, students are encouraged to add memorabilia to the time capsule by mailing items to the Registrar's Office on campus or by submitting items digitally.
