Last one of a series of four Open Days

It's almost over for the spring! We had four open days in February and March. I had to organise them all and attend them all. But they're all done now! I can get a bit more weekend to myself. They're not too onerous really; the organisation is difficult the first time around but once you've got the hang of it it's OK. And they don't even last long; they roll from 12.45 to 15.30, but if you organise them that means 11.00 to 16.00. Still better than the autumn ones though, which start in the morning. Then we get two batches of visitors; the morning round and the afternoon round. In spring we only get one!

We'll only know in summer how successful we've been. We hope that all of the prospective students that come visit actually choose Bangor and show up in September for Welcome Week! Or at least a fair share. We'll see! And then we only have one strange mini-open day in April. I don't quite know yet what shape that'll take!
