Things to look for at Days on the Lawn

If you're coming to visit for Days on the Lawn on Monday, you need to be on the look out for a few things.  First of all, there are hundreds of students who have volunteered to be your guides on this big day.  They've been streaming into Peabody Hall all week long to sign up for their stations.


All of the Days on the Lawn student volunteers will be wearing the special t-shirt below (the leaders of the group will have on the same shirt, but the colors will be reversed).  They will all be happy answer your questions or point you in the right direction as you explore.


Admission officers wear gold name plates.  We are really looking forward to meeting the students behind the applications.  We've been couped up reading for months and Monday will be one of the first days when we've been able to break away. 

You should also look for these signs on dark brown stands around the Grounds (our word for campus).  You should start to see them when you leave the parking garage at the intersection of Emmet and Ivy Streets.


They will also be outside anywhere there's a panel or session throughout the day.  After you register at the Rotunda, the "Class List" table should be your next stop. 


Be sure to check the parking information!  If you have visited before, you probably didn't park in the garage where we are providing free parking. 


Please don't be shy! Say hello and ask questions! 


CavDog ADORES students! Please come say hello!


Safe travels! We can't wait to see you!
