For the past three Fridays, the Office of Admissions has held Spring Visit programs in the Memorial Union. These three programs have seen over 2500 visitors from around the nation come through the doors of the MU to learn more about the university. The February event at LaSells Stewart Center had around 500 guests. That’s a record number, by the way, and nearly double the amount of guests over last year’s spring programs! It made for some pretty crammed quarters, but the more the merrier, right?
Lizbeth Campos, Claire Bennett and I have to give a shout-out to Deb Mott and the outstanding MU staff for their assistance and their “how do we get them pillows?” philosophy when talking about guests of the MU. It’s no doubt due to the MU staff and student workers why it’s the number one ranked student union in America.
In addition, we’d like the thank the following people who have made the Spring Visit programs a success. We appreciate your help and assistance. Our apologies to anyone who we may have inadvertently left off this comprehensive list!

If you’re a student and missed out on the fun, you can still arrange a daily visitation to campus. Also, I’ve posted some photos from the events taken by Dan Crouch.
