Nov. 2 through 6
In order to celebrate the past 50 years of the Viking Union, the VU will be hosting a week long celebration filled with decade-themed activities, events and giveaways. During the first week of November, one day will be dedicated to each of the past five decades. The celebration will begin Monday by remembering the 1950s, Tuesday the 1960s, Wednesday the 1970s, and so on. During this week make sure to visit Vendor’s Row for an array of vendors as well as exclusive 50th Anniversary sales and discounts. Also, KUGS will be broadcasting decade-themed music live from the 6th floor of the VU from noon to 1 p.m. every day this week.
VU Time Capsule
Nov. 2, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Hidden in the confines of the Viking Union, a time capsule dating back to 1959 has been unearthed. This historic piece is scheduled to be opened and on display for all to see. Take a break from your coursework and see Western as it was when sockhops were hip and Elvis was king. All pieces have remained in perfect condition, kept protected from the deterioration of time.
