Open Day at Glasgow University
If you happened to be around the West End of Glasgow yesterday you might have noticed that the average age of the people around you had dropped significantly and that everyone was carrying around a green canvas bag with the words “GLASGOW Get More Out Of It.” Yesterday was Open Day at the University of Glasgow.
Open Day, in the simplest of terms, means that there were some 10,000 prospective students wandering around the Glasgow University campus, by themselves or with a group of friends, looking a bit lost. At least it wasn’t raining, as it has for the last few weeks, every. single. day. It was a nice warm and sunny day, luckily, as the University looks a lot prettier when the sun comes out.
The University organized tours of buildings and gave several lectures, including, apparently, a talk on the chemistry of chocolate and ice cream. The green canvas bags contained the 2010 Prospectus and various leaflets and information for the prospective students who hopefully enjoyed a nice day away fom the classroom. One of the leaflets handed out was a map of a self-guided tour. of the University. Interestingly the walking tour completely skips the Adam Smith Building. Wonder why…
I took quite a few photos yesterday afternoon while checking out what the whole Open Day business was all about, so I’ll post some of the better ones in the coming days. You can find the Open Day Brochure on the University website, as well as the 2010 Prospectus, if you’re interested.
As Freshers’ Week ’09 is just around the corner, help me out by having your say in the poll below!
