University Open Days 2016
The 2016 Open Days took place over two days, June 30 and July 1, and here at Downing we were lucky enough to welcome lots of visitors and show them around the College.
Colour-matching was a definite priority and I can confirm that Downing magenta was everywhere – magenta gazebo, magenta balloons, magenta signs, magenta madness all round! Visitors got the opportunity to wander around the College site and see key facilities such as the Dining Hall, Howard Theatre, Butterfield Cafe and Bar, and the new Heong Gallery. The current exhibition, Ai Wei Wei: Cubes and Trees, provided a wonderful backdrop to the day and it was brilliant that so many people got to see the artwork (particularly the mini forest of trees outside the Chapel!) whilst touring the College.
Another thing that was in abundance were our new ‘Discover Downing’ canvas bags, which proved a real hit with the crowds of students laden down with heavy prospectuses!
If you attended the University Open Days and have any more questions about Downing or applying to the University do get in touch. Equally, if you didn’t manage to see Downing but are interested in the College, come up to our September Open Days!
