I’m not totally clear what Majors Day was (is?)–but I guess it must have been either a chance for students to explore possible majors or for faculty to meet informally with students who had already decided to major in their fields. I recently ran across several folders of photos taken at Majors Days across a couple of decades. This first batch really caught my eye.
First off, I don’t recognize the person who is giving the demonstration. Second, I don’t understand what he’s demonstrating–sure seems to be an engine, but it’s quite odd looking. Third, we’re clearly in Ryon Lab, but is that building behind it still here? I haven’t had a minute to go over and look. A little help? Anybody?
Bonus: Preparations are underway for the return of the Cohen House sundial, but I haven’t heard an ETA.
