A ceremony commemorating the 50th Anniversary will take place at 2:30 p.m. Students and faculty who were at the Middletown campus when it opened 50 years ago will make the first donations to a time capsule that will be assembled during the year and then sealed until the campus' centennial in 2066.

"We invite each and every one of you to join us in celebrating 50 years at Miami Middletown," said Interim Associate Provost and Miami Regionals Dean Dr. Cathy Bishop-Clark. "This is a special place and it has touched and improved thousands of lives – including my own. Miami Regionals is at a unique place. We commemorate the last fifty and look forward to an exciting future."

Throughout the year the Middletown campus will have a series of lectures, themed grouped chats for oral history, and other special events to continue the celebration of its five decades of service.
