Admitted freshmen and their families will "Discover UCSD!" on Admit Day 1997, Saturday, April 12, from 8:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. This event is an opportunity to showcase the UCSD campus, its academic departments, services and student organizations during this important decision-making period. Admit Day is expected to draw more than 3,000 visitors to UCSD for the day to attend presentations on a variety of university-related topics, visit their college of admittance, talk with students and faculty, and tour the campus. The event is co-sponsored by the Office of Admissions and Outreach and Associated Students of UCSD.
The day will open with a series of Welcome Sessions led by Dr. Joseph Watson, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, and Dr. Richard Backer, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management/Registrar. The five undergraduate colleges will then host guests in college overview sessions designed to introduce students and their parents to the college and its academic and extracurricular opportunities. Campus tours and residence hall tours will be held throughout the day, along with tours of RIMAC, and various academic departments. From 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., student clubs and organizations, student support services and academic departments will host an Information Fair in the Library Walk area and Price Center Plaza, while ongoing information sessions cover the five undergraduate colleges, housing, money matters, majors, athletics, career preparation and campus life. Faculty members from a variety of departments will discuss academic expectations, the many ways that students and faculty can interact, and opportunities for student involvement in faculty research.
"Admit Day is a very important day for the university. It is an invaluable 
opportunity for admitted students and their parents to meet with our 
faculty, staff, students and college administrators," says Mae Brown, UCSD's Director of Admissions and Outreach. "And for the campus community, 
the day provides us with the opportunity to show these students why UCSD is 
ranked so highly in national polls. Many students have told us that they 
made the decision to attend UCSD based on their positive experiences during 
Admit Day."
The five colleges are also hosting the following festivities and celebrations in conjunction with Admit Day to highlight college life: Thurgood Marshall College - Cultural Celebration; Eleanor Roosevelt College - Windows to the World; John Muir College - 30th Anniversary Involvement Fair; Earl Warren College - Street Faire; and Revelle - a carnival.
