SLAC Open House Events
for Prospective Stanford Student  

  Friday Apr/2/2010 1:30-5:00pm

 The Friday Apr/2 SLAC open house events will include faculty open offices and mini lab tours. Most events will be available beyond 4pm for those wishing to extend their stay. The transportation between Stanford campus and SLAC will rely on the free Stanford Marguerite shuttle (details see below) which runs every 20min for flexible return time to campus. Current graduate students will assist the Marguerite shuttle rides.

Most people with open offices during Apr/2 SLAC open house can also be available on campus on Thursday. Students interested in talking to individual programs and faculties, are encouraged to contact the people you'd like to talk to in advance to ensure the best time window for your conversations and visit.
