USC Time Capsule

USC celebrated 100 years of student health last year with the opening of the new Engemann Student Health Center in 2013.  Yesterday, our work helped officially commemorate the milestone!

When the previous student health center building (built in 1950) was demolished, the cornerstone was kept as a momento.  However, staff noticed something unusual about the large chunk of limestone: it protected a forgotten time capsule!

Read more about the discovery of the forgotten time capsule here.

KC Restoration built a custom base to match the new building design, cleaned and repaired the original cornerstone, etched new lettering, and set it in place just in time for the ceremony. (which made the front page of USC Daily Trojan today)
