Thousands flock
to Open House
A record number of people came
out to campus March 9,10 and 11 to
take part in UBC's Open House—by
all accounts the biggest and most successful university open house in the
country.
Attendance over three days was
tallied at 200,000, exceeding 1987
Open House figures by 50,000. At
one point on Sunday afternoon, traffic was backed up along Marine Drive
to West 49th Avenue.
With more than 400 events scattered throughout the university, few
visitors made it to all locations. Many
said they returned to see more the
second day.
UBC President David Strangway,
who with Alice Strangway toured the
campus informally all three days, congratulated the hundreds of faculty,
staff, students and members of the
outside community who contributed
to the event's success.
"The displays and exhibits I saw
were first class and reflected
months of work," Strangway said. "Open House
is a window on our
world and I'm delighted       so
many
people
came
out
t  o
see for
themselves   what
UBC     is     all
about."
Strangway said he
was especially pleased to
see so many young people
on campus.  "This is one way
we can share what we do with the
leaders of tomorrow," he said.
As the first and major event of
UBC's 75th Anniversary celebrations, Open House 1990 involved
almost every department and unit on
campus. "Everyone pulled together
to make the event something we can

elementary
school children.
UBC's marketing students
conducted a survey of visitors to
find   out   what
be proud of," said Leslie Peterson,
UBC's Chancellor. "Many visitors
told me they had fun and that the
university put on a great show."
The more than 20 millimetres of
rain which fell Friday didn't deter an
estimated 3,500 high school students
who came out to UBC on school trips.
Clear skies and sunshine Saturday
and Sunday brought the campus to
life with continuous entertainment
from roving musicians, street bands,
jugglers, dancers and singers. Larger
than life mascots charmed children
and the UBC letter people drew
crowds wherever they appeared.
The three-day showcase of UBC
research and campus festivities attracted a great deal of media attention
with stories running in newspapers
and on radio and television province-
wide.
The first question many people
asked when they arrived on campus
they had seen and what they liked,
said   project   coordinator,   Daniel
Gardiner. Visitors were also asked
what they would like to see at UBC's
next Open House, scheduled for 1993.
Volunteers at five information
kiosks located around the campus
gave out programs, pointed visitors in
the right direction, and reunited lost
children and dogs and mislaid keys
and clothing with their parents or
owners. The most common question
asked campus-wide was "where's the
washroom?"
Food sales in all areas were brisk.
Visitors tried out soy-based ice-cream
in Agricultural Sciences, salmon or
hamburgers at Botany and Zoology
or Agricultural Sciences and
Forestry's barbecues respectively.
Coffee was a big hit wherever it was
available.
Visitors bought 75th anniversary t-
shirts and other souvenirs, clutched
giveaway balloons from Sportsfest
and Forestry, and took away enough
free plant and tree seedlings from Plant
Science and Forestry to green a good
part of the Lower Mainland.
Saturday saw dozens of B.C. high
school teams compete in the annual
Physics Olympics, entertaining audi-

ences with their imaginative efforts to
solve physics problems.
Sunday was the busiest day for most
faculties and departments. The Department of Psychology, which attempted to track visitors, estimated
that between 400 and 500 people an
hour passed through the doors to the
Kenny building, staying an average
of 30 minutes each.
Health and fitness testing was much
in demand with lineups to vision- and
hearing-testing services in Psychology and fitness testing in the War
Memorial Gym. In IRC, visitors
checked out the air capacity of their
lungs and measured their hearts' electrical impulses.
At the Wellness Centre in Pharmaceutical Sciences, people could find
out if they were at risk for coronary-
related disease. It was the first time
cation and Recreation School, athletics, intramurals, community sports,
and the UBC Aquatic Centre and
Tennis Centre were offered in one
location, said Kim Gordon, director
of women's athletics, who estimated
75,000 people visited the War Memorial Gym and Aquatic Centre over
the three days.
Visitors had their picture taken with
the Thunderbird mascot, tried out
wheelchair basketball and snapped up
old sporting equipment for rock-bottom prices at a benefit sale.
The Harvard gold exhibit, sponsored by Placer Dome Inc. in the M.Y.
Williams Geological Museum was
packed solid throughout the weekend,
according to museum curator Joe
Nagel. "We were mobbed," Nagel
said, estimating there was up to 500
people in the museum at any one time.

that service had been offered and
proved to be one of the best-received
health displays, said Marguerite Yee,
Pharmaceutical Sciences instructor.
The Asian Centre probably offered
the greatest variety of back to back
events in any one building—dance,
martial arts, lectures, films, displays—
and a smorgasbord of Asian food
which sold out each day. The centre
distributed more than 3,000 programs,
with total attendance running much
higher, said Daniel Overmyer, head
of Asian Studies. Many community
groups performed for free allowing
visitors a rare chance to see folk dancing and musical concerts.
Escorted tours of the Nitobe Gardens were also a big hit, said Sabrina
Yan, events co-ordinator. The Museum of Anthropology reported close
to 5,000 visitors over the three days.
Open House 1990 was the first time
highlights from UBC's Physical Edu-
from $1 to $7,000 went on sale and
more than 2,000 pieces were bought
including one gold specimen weighing more than two ounces.
At the outdoor sluice box, Geological Sciences students went through
800 bags of sand as visitors panned
for gold. The sand was seeded with
an ounce of donated gold flakes and
even Friday's bitter cold and driving
rain didn't deter would-be prospectors who jammed the box all day.
Thousands of children discovered
Kids' World at the Osborne gyms.
Under the direction of Education Professor Gary Pennington, they climbed
ropes, learned new games and made
1,500 space hats on Friday alone assisted by the staff of Imagination Market. Volunteers observed several
adults participating in kids' activities.
The Education Building was also a
hit with young people, offering Math
for Kids, Science for Kids, Comput
ers for Kids and
plenty for adults
too. Hands-on
activities were
the most popular
as were science
demonstrations,
said Education
Professor Robert
Carlisle.
Dentistry
opened up the
Dental Performance Simulation
Laboratory, one
ofonlytwointhe
world, offering
visitors a rare
chance to see
state-of-the-art
dentistry. In Forestry, visitors
made paper by
hand and voted
on land management options for
the Stein Valley
watershed. Agricultural Sciences' Dairy
Barn tours, originally scheduled for 20 minute intervals, had to be shortened and run continuously to accommodate visitors,
said Farm Manager Ted Cathcart.
In the Bookstore, the hottest selling items were reference, business
and children's books, according to
Don Donovan, merchandise manager.
Many visitors didn't realize the Bookstore was open to the general public
on a regular basis, he added.
Visitors poked through labs,
watched the robotic bartender take
the tops off bottles and pour visitors a
drink, invaded the giant cell and
gasped at lightning displays. Demonstrations of glass blowing enthralled crowds in Chemistry.
There were continuous performances by Music School students,
guided tours through the Frederic
Wood Theatre, and a maze of more
than 100 advertising t-shirts in Com-

merce. Tours of TRIUMF, which
drew close to 2,000 people, and of the
Botanical Gardens were also popular.
Many visitors said despite their years
on campus as students, they had never
seen so much of the university.
After dark, between 400 and 500
visitors—more than could be accommodated—returned to the observatory
in Geophysics and Astronomy to view.
the night skies, said David Vogt, department curator. The last keen observers left at 2 a.m. Monday.
Main Library distributed more than
1,000 copies of newspaper headlines
to visitors for their birthdate—the
earliest for April 19,1900, said Brenda
Peterson, information and orientation
librarian.
"We were overwhelmed," she said,
adding that many alumni from UBC's
early days identified themselves to
staff.

More 75th festivities
Discover Summer next
Open House was only the beginning of a very special year on campus as UBC celebrates its 75th anniversary.
From May through August, the
Discover Summer program will offer campus tours, summer stock
theatre, a music festival and sports
and recreation opportunities.
Following that will be 75th Anniversary/Homecoming Week, Sept.
27-Oct. 3, with the gala Great
Trekker dinner, the Homecoming
football game and a huge public
birthday party featuring the recreated sights and sounds of the
university's beginnings in 1915.
Discover Summer at UBC will
offer four months of special events
and programs, including the popular summer campus tours. They will
now include specialized tours for
persons with disabilities, children,
seniors, families and other groups.
The children's tours will feature
informal outdoor performances by
the Theatre Department's summer
stock players.
As well, families are encouraged
to combine picnics on the scenic
campus with free noon-hour music
concerts, tours of the Botanical
Garden or visits to such facilities as
the Aquatic Centre, the Astronomical Observatory and the Museum of
Anthropology.
On July 28, bargain-hunters will
have a field day at the UBC Super
Sale. As part of the university's
commitment to the environment, a
large portion of the sale merchandise will come from SERF, UBC's
Surplus Equipment Recycling Facility.
"We'll have computers, furniture,
office and lab equipment — even
vehicles." said Surplus Coordinator
Vince Grant
Other merchandise will come
from alumni and student groups and
UBC departments, all of which have
been invited to set up booths on the
field to sell surplus and donated
items.
"We're even hoping some ofthe
university's business suppliers will
be involved," said Grant.
There will also be an educational
aspect to the Super Sale. The SERF
booth will have brochures and displays on how UBC has developed
its recycling programs, as well as
information on how everyone in the
community can increase their recycling activities.
"For 30 or 40 years we've called
them garage sales," notes Extra-Sessional Studies Director Norm Watt,
who is organizing the sale with
Grant. "That's all part of recycling
— they're community events."
Following the Discover Summer
at UBC program will be 75th Anniversary/Homecoming Week.
The week will be highlighted by
the traditional Arts '20 relay race,
which began in 1920 as a 12-kilometre match race between the various faculties, with the Arts class of
'23 squad outrunning the other six
teams.
Today more than 2,000 UBC and
community entrants run annually in
a race that is part of Intramural
Sports' Partners in Participation
program, encouraging community
involvement in a number of university sporting events.
Other highlights of the week will
include the gala Great Trekker dinner honoring service to the university, the Homecoming football game,
a number of alumni reunions and a
lecture series on Pacific Rim development.
UBC's official 75th birthday on
Sunday, Sept. 30 will be celebrated
with a party that includes people in
period costumes and antique cars,
street entertainers and the ceremonial cutting of a giant birthday cake.

THANK YOU
To all our faculty, staff, students and volunteers who made Open House 1990
such a smashing success, thank you.
Your imagination, hard work and enthusiasm reflect well upon you and upon our
university. Open House 1990 was a great opportunity for us to proudly tell British
Columbians about UBC's contributions to teaching and research. It also was a
superb chance to show off our beautiful campus. Congratulations on a job done exceedingly well.

Quick action saved opening
ceremony from elements
Driving rain caused Friday's opening ceremonies for Open House to be
moved at the last minute from the outdoor stage on Main Mall to the Frederic
Wood Theatre.
Undeterred, Bob Eberle, theatre
production manager, adapted the backdrop of the current stage production to
allow a formal ribbon-cutting by B.C.'s
Lieutenant-Governor David Lam and
UBC Chancellor Leslie Peterson.
The UBC Faculty Club also rose to
the occasion providing an impromptu
luncheon for special guests and dignitaries who were originally scheduled
to flip salmon at an outdoor celebrity
barbecue.
Former chancellors and professors.
UBC alumni, distinguished donors,
members ofthe university's leadership
campaign, and other friends and supporters of UBC were in the audience.
They welcomed a stage party consisting of: David Lam, Leslie Peterson,
Minister of Advanced Education and
Mayor Gordon Campbell
Job Training Bruce Strachan, Vancouver Mayor Gordon Campbell, UBC
President David Strangway, and Alma
Mater Society President Kurt Preinsperg.
Most members of the stage party
sported 75th anniversary sweatshirts
for the occasion. Music was provided
by the Magee High School band.
Strachan, who said he had arrived
early to look at Open House exhibits
and displays, publicly thanked UBC's
faculty and staff who, he said, had made
remarkable contributions to the province over the last 75 years. Similar
sentiments were voiced by other speakers.
"All great cities have great universities," said Gordon Campbell. "The
fact that Vancouver is great is in no
small measure because of a great university."
Following the ceremony, vintage
buses provided by B.C. Transit took
dignitaries and special guests—including Walter Koerner, former member
of UBC's Board of Governors, and
Nathan Nemetz and Bob Wyman, former UBC chancellors—to Fairview
Grove where Forestry Professor Oscar
Sziklai and students from the Forestry
faculty helped them plant 75 trees.
6.500 cinnamon buns
All services ran smoothly
Hungry visitors at Open House
1990 downed more than 5,000 hamburgers, 4,000 hotdogs, 6,500 cinnamon buns, 2.500 cinnamon snails.
1,000 pieces of Ponderosa cake, 8,000
cookies. 3,000 muffins and 4,000
squares.
"I think the public got a good taste
of what kind of food a university food
service does and can produce," said
Shirley Louie, assistant director of
Food Services.
Most Food Services locations on
campus were open during the three-
day event and additional food carts
could be found around the university.
"It was a very successful weekend."
Louie said. "We look forward to 1993."
There were no major traffic incidents during Open House, said Bob
Goodwin, assistant security manager
for Parking and Security Services.
His department's employees helped
smooth the way for the thousands of
cars that were driven onto the campus
and ensured they found spots to park
in.
"They were parked everywhere
except on top of the Sedgewick Library," Goodwin said.

Blue-uniformed personnel also ensured there were no security problems
at UBC. Extra security was put into
place at the Harvard Gold Exhibit, IRC
and the Museum of Anthropology.
Goodwin said.
Chuck Rooney, directot of "Plant?
Operations, said custodial staff and
maintenance tradesmen were out on
campus all weekend keeping things
tidy and in working order.
More than 1,000 bags of garbage
were picked up from various events
and staff were out at 6 a.m. cleaning
the campus and collecting garbage, he
said.
Tradespeople responded to a number of calls for technical help for some
of the displays.
Friday's weather and the uncertainty
about weekend weather meant staff had
to be prepared for any eventuality.
"We even had people on standby
for salting, sanding and shovelling
duty," Rooney said.
"But everything was routine, everything went well," he said.
Music school

Union and the University Singers under the direction of James Fankhauser.
Included in the program are two
choral masterpieces of the early 20th
century: Poulenc's Gloria and Vaughan
Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem featuring soloists Katherine Van Kampen,
soprano, and George Evelyn, baritone.
Student soloists will perform Invocation and Salut Printemps by Debussy

B.C. students
enjoy Open House
In busload after busload, students from Terrace, Merritt, Port Hardy
and many other B.C. communities arrived on campus March 9 to
attend Open House.
In total, 3,561 students from 79 schools visited campus, more than
twice as many as Open House 1987, said Mary Stott, director of
School and College Liaison, the office that coordinated the school
visits.
The students ranged in age from toddlers to Grade 12 students who
may be attending first-year classes here next year. Whatever their age,
heavy rains did nothing to subdue their enthusiasm as they dashed
from building to building.
"Despite disparities of the weather it was a very successful and
rewarding day for the students," Stott said.
All elementary and secondary schools in B.C. received information
on Open House from the School and College Liaison office, including
flyers listing attraction highlights and services.
Students registered at the main information kiosk near the Bookstore, where they received programs and maps. Volunteer UBC students then escorted them to their first point of interest.
Stott said the visiting schools frequently praised the student, staff
and faculty volunteers who helped them around campus. Visitors also
marvelled at the diversity of facilities, exhibits and attractions at Open
House, she said.
Friday is the day schools traditionally attend Open House, but all
three days were open to students.

Volunteers were vital
in weekend success
Sporting neon-yellow caps and
white t-shirts emblazoned with UBC's
now-famous letter people, more than
400 students, staff and faculty devoted
their time and services to Open House
1990.
The volunteers staffed information
kiosks, handled telephones and parking, drove shuttle buses, managed
crowds and worked at Kids' World.
They also escorted lost children,
worried parents and the occasional lost
dog.
"They did whatever needed to be
done," said Jane Atcheson-Groves, coordinator of the Open House volunteer
program. "They were great. They went
above and beyond the call of duty."
Atcheson-Groves said many of the
volunteers completed their shifts and
returned to the Volunteer Centre in the
Student Union Building asking for
more work.
The bulk of the volunteers were
UBC students from all faculties who
got a great chance to explore the campus.
"They found places they never
knew even existed," said Atcheson-
Groves, adding that only a handful of
people out ofthe hundreds who volunteered their services didn't show up for
their shifts.
Sian Roberts, a work study student
who coordinated the student volunteers,
said the yellow-capped corps were
great ambassadors for the university.
"Many people caught Open House
fever and came to see if they could get
involved and be a volunteer," she said.
"The enthusiasm was wonderful."
Roberts said that aside from the 415
who signed up for the program, there
were also about 2,000 people who
staffed the more than 400 events and
displays across the campus.
The Alma Mater Society donated
room in SUB for the Volunteer Centre
and Food Services donated food for
the hungry workers during the three-
day event.
Volunteers helped point visitors in the right direction.

Kids' World was popular with the younger set...
While the Stein Valley
drew all kinds of
attention
• •
More than half the people polled at a model of the Stein Valley displayed during UBC's Open House opted to retain the area as wilderness,
said John Worrall, Forest Sciences professor and coordinator of the
project.
Of the 1,000 visitors who cast their vote in the informal public survey
by the Forestry faculty, 58 per cent voted to leave the area undeveloped.
Twenty two per cent of respondents chose one of three plans to log in
the Stein; 11 per cent voted to give the valley to Native people; and 6 per
cent called for a developed park area with roads and trails.
The remaining three per cent elected other plans from the 10 land
management options presented.
Forestry students had spent hundreds of hours painstakingly constructing the relief model of the watershed for Open House. Visitors
picked the plan of their choice by dropping a coin in the appropriate box.
