The creative energy filling the symposium aisles was a stimulating kick-off to a busy Saturday during this year’s Bobcat Weekend that welcomed more than 4,000 families and students and over 600 alumni to campus, with more than 500 people registered to attend Exploratorium.
“This is an event that is designed to showcase the excellent faculty, student research, and other types of exemplary teaching and special projects that occur on campus,” said Wesley Renfro, Exploratorium planning committee member and senior associate dean for academic affairs and strategic initiatives in the College of Arts and Sciences. “This event was a way to give our alumni and friends on campus for Bobcat Weekend a chance to see some of the amazing things that occur in our classrooms and in our research spaces.”
