The SLAC PPA open house events will include faculty open offices and mini lab tours. Note that many events will be available before 2pm and may also extend beyond 5pm for those wishing to stay. The transportation between Stanford campus and SLAC will have dedicated bus runs for Tuesday in the morning and return at 1pm. Transit on other times will rely on the free Stanford Marguerite shuttle (details see below) which runs every 20min for flexible return time to campus.
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.
