Campus’ Spring Open House Draws Record Attendance

April 26, 2018

More than 3,700 individuals visited UC Merced last Saturday during the campus’s annual Bobcat Day — a 26 percent increase over 2017 and more than any previous year.

About 1,200 admitted students and twice as many family members and other guests sampled all the campus has to offer, learning about financial aid, housing, class registration and different clubs and organizations. For the first time, the campus hosted lab tours showcasing where some of the campus’s innovative and collaborative research takes place.

After a full day of exploration, more than 100 prospective students accepted their UC Merced admittance offers on the spot, and more are accepting each day.

Sarahy Condor Montes, a first-generation biological sciences major originally from Perú by way of Chico, was one of them.

“My first time stepping on campus, everybody was extremely welcoming,” she said. “It felt like home as soon as I saw this campus.”
