Day 1 - March 31, 2016

For Day 1, during the day you'll have time for one activity--a field trip, a sporting event, or any informal activity on your own--plus the evening pub celebration. 

NOTE:  There is no open house "social" at Old Main on Thursday.  This is a day for field trips, sports, informal self-organized activities, or simply catching your breath.
