For a Saturday, Murkland Hall, home of the College, is a busy place. The UNH Mock Trial team is hosting a regional tournament today, and future lawyers are strategizing in the halls while the judges are getting ready in their chambers. There are 10 courtrooms set up in in the building–rooms that serve as classrooms on any other day–in which trials will be running throughout the weekend. Murkland Hall has never seen so many suits!
Today is also a university-wide open house for prospective students and their families. Thousands of people are exploring every corner of the campus. Faculty and staff members throughout the College are on campus to answer questions about majors and minors and to provide information about opportunities for student research and creativity. In Murkland Hall, informational meetings are being held on foreign language and culture study, the undeclared liberal arts status, and financial aid.
It’s a beautiful fall day for our visitors!
