San Diego State University is opening its doors from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 for Explore SDSU, the university’s all-campus open house. The event offers prospective students, families, alumni and the community a glimpse of the Aztec Experience.

The event offers a campus-wide information fair and more than two dozen open houses across campus. It also features nearly 100 academic and student life workshops aimed at providing future Aztecs with an overview of admission processes, financial aid, majors, career services and leadership opportunities.

The information fair, made up of nearly 400 booths set up around campus, will provide details about academic departments, housing, campus organizations, facilities and programs.

Something for everyone

Numerous open houses and tours of campus facilities will introduce attendees to the Aztec Experience. Among other things, campus visitors can get a behind the scenes look at science and engineering labs and projects, art galleries, residence halls and the KPBS studios.

The university is encouraging SDSU alumni to make their way back to campus to reconnect with their favorite programs and departments and explore what has changed at their alma mater. The Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center will be open and staff will offer information about alumni membership, chapters and events.

All visitors are invited to take advantage of the free concerts and musical performances happening as part of Explore SDSU. SDSU Athletics also has a full schedule of events throughout the day, including the SDSU football spring scrimmage and baseball, softball and women’s lacrosse games.

The university is also once again hosting the Science and Engineering Sampler as part of Explore SDSU. The event targets K-12 students and their families and showcases nearly 30 interactive activities including telescopes, laser demonstrations, and robotics.

What's new this year

For the first time this year, attendees will also be able to download an app to help navigate the numerous activities taking place on campus as part of Explore SDSU.

The app includes schedules for workshops and tours, information pages for all open houses, entertainment locations and times, campus maps, parking information, as well as an activity feed that allows attendees to network with each other.

The Explore SDSU 2017 app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
