Homecoming Weekend events are under way today, and Family and Friends Weekend launches tomorrow.
In addition, Saturday is Open University Day, one of the signature events of UMaine’s 150th anniversary celebration. Nearly 30 venues will be open to the public, featuring family-friendly tours, demonstrations, exhibits and performances every half hour, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
These venues cover the breadth of UMaine, with participation from every college, Cooperative Extension, sports venues, Fogler Library and many of our research centers.
Stop by one of the six information booths on campus tomorrow and pick up an Open University Day Passport. Get your passport stamped at each venue you visit and turn it in at an information booth before leaving campus to be eligible for prizes. Among the top prizes for Open University Day Passports with the most stamps: athletics tickets, copies of the Historical Atlas of Maine and UMaine gear.
A map describing all the Open University Day venues is online and can be downloaded to a handheld device for ease in locating the Open University venues.
More information about all weekend events open to the public is on the UMaine 150th website.
