However, if you CAN come to both days... Get the full preview of life "On the Hill" as it is affectionately known. Saturday (Bruin Day) is really when housing will be out in force. And additional aspects of resident life will be available. Tours of multiple styles of rooms, you can talk to student panels, faculty resident panels, score swag, and have multiple opportunities to meet current resident students. If you participate in Bruin Day and make it to the dorms, there is no need to go again on Sunday.
Getting to the dorms is an uphill walk to the residential halls and you are advised to wear comfortable shoes.
