Maine Edge previews Open University Day

The Maine Edge carried a University of Maine news release announcing UMaine’s yearlong celebration of its 150th anniversary continues with Open University Day on Oct. 17, held in conjunction with Homecoming, and Family and Friends Weekend from Oct. 16–18. A list of all public events throughout the weekend, including athletics events, art exhibits, planetarium shows, performances and receptions is online. “We’re extending an invitation to people throughout Maine to join us for these three days of events campuswide,” said Dana Humphrey, chair of UMaine’s Anniversary Implementation Committee. “This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about the state’s flagship university and how its teaching, research and economic development, and outreach efforts benefit all of Maine.”

Open University Day, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., features public tours of UMaine’s world-class laboratories, performances, exhibits and program presentations at nearly 30 campus venues.
