The capsule was sealed at the official opening of the campus, in October 1994.
Faculty and staff, including some who were with NIC when the campus opened, were there as President John Bowman opened the capsule and unveiled its contents.
NIC is collecting memorabilia in preparation for re-sealing the capsule this spring.
