Beaming new light on a brighter Open Day

 Open Day

The University of Adelaide's Open Day is bigger, bolder and brighter in 2005!

Held on Sunday, August 14, Open Day is adopting a number of different themes that encourage interaction, as well as offering the usual course and study information for prospective students.

Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the campus, get involved in a range of activities, learn more about the University's heritage, research and innovation and discover the many aspects of university life - and all for free!

"The Forum" and "Science outside the Square" are the lead events where University scientists, academics and community leaders will address the big issues.

Topics up for discussion in the Forum include genetically modified food, stem cell research, human rights and terrorism, and making a good society.

Adelaide Thinker in Residence and renowned neuroscientist Baroness Professor Susan Greenfield will add an international flavour to "Genes of Bragg", one of the Science outside the Square events being held throughout the State.

Open Day also gives the opportunity to enjoy the refreshingly new campus landscape, take in Arts and Culture in the Barr Smith Library, peruse the many faculty displays, explore the Bonython Hall Expo, and experience great food and entertainment.

Don't miss it!
