May@Mac - Another Success


Hello all, this is a quick note to recognize the outstanding efforts of the volunteers who were on hand for Saturday’s May@MAC Open House. May@MAC is a major recruiting event for prospective Year 1 students. Some 80% of students who have received acceptance offers from Universities do not make their final selection until the last 2 weeks of May, so this open house is a crucial recruiting event.

The entire crew of volunteers worked very hard to ensure that our visitors received personal attention. Visitors were given an opportunity to view our Year 1 labs, the undergraduate instrument facility, and additional displays and demonstrations on X-Ray crystal structures, superconductors, pH, and chemical demonstrations, as well as two mini “Magic of Molecules” shows. We had a steady stream of visitors from shortly after 9 a.m. lasting throughout the event, and we estimate we had at least 300 visitors. Thank you to everyone for your hard work; our visitors were treated well and were very impressed.
