Potential and accepted students walked the paths of the School of Mines and Technology Saturday to see if it's a campus they can call home.
Students toured dorm rooms, hallways, and outside paths, in addition to eating lunch at the cafeteria.
Molly Frankl, the director of admissions, says the turnout this year is more than last year, as 120 students came Saturday and only a little over 85 came last year. New this year, the open house let students visit two academic departments, instead of just one.
Frankl says the open house is a way for students to get comfortable with the campus. "They really get a sense of the community of the School of Mines," said Frankl. "It's very personal. It's not like their just a number, they're really getting one-on-one time treatment, and so I think that really shines through in that program."
The next open house for the School of Mines and Technology is on October 19, followed by one on November 9.
