O is for… Open Day [ABC Sundae]
Open Day, which occurs twice a year in June and September, can best be described as mayhem on campus. Some 10,000 prospective students descend upon the campus of Glasgow University to see for themselves what could possibly be their home for four years, and to figure out if this particular University is the place for them.
It would be interesting to find out just how many of the students who visit on Open Days actually end up studying at the University? Anyone reading this come for Open Day and be convinced that this was the place for you?
The next Open Days at the University of Glasgow are on Thursday June 17th and Wednesday September 1st. More information on those can be found here. There’s also an annual Applicants’ Visit Day for students who hold an offer of a place in certain faculties which will be held on Tuesday 30th March this year.
I posted four photos from last September’s Open Day on this blog, including a panorama of the East Quadrangle, a photo of Bute Hall, prospective students sitting on the Hunter Memorial, and one more, all with a little more information about Open Day. The above picture was also taken on the same day as the already posted
