Engineering Open House Tomorrow!

One of my favorite days of the year is tomorrow! I'll be spending the morning on Engineering Way here at UVa, visiting with our engineering students who are holding an open house for the community. If you're a prospective student and want to come, you can register online for the event.

I'll be giving back-to-back admission talks with Dean Ed Berger in MEC 205 (Mechanical Engineering building) at 11 am and 12 pm. If you've already attended an information session, you've probably heard a lot of what I'm going to say, so don't feel obligated to come. You should DEFINITELY check out the other things going on in the MEC building, though.

Former astronaut and UVa faculty member Kathy Thornton is giving a talk right after our admission session and she always draws a crowd.

There's a full schedule and parking information on the open house website. The weather is supposed to be beautiful!
