EVERY COLLEGE OFFERS

I was terrified of coming to college. However, those worries went away after I met all the awesome people here at Muir. I love how Muir has a homey and welcoming atmosphere. There’s always a smiling face and a sweet hello waiting to greet you. Muir’s staff is also very supportive and loves to connect with students, which is something rarely seen in big campuses.

MARSHALL.UCSD.EDU developing the scholar and citizen

est. 1970

AUDREY Claremont, CA Both in and out of the classroom, I was able to engage with different people who each had unique and exciting stories to tell. Beyond that, I joined oncampus organizations that supported my ideas and gave me the opportunity to act on those passions.


HOW DOES THE COLLEGE SYSTEM WORK?

WARREN.UCSD.EDU

»» The college system removes the anonymity and/or intimidation that can occur at a large, Tier 1 research university and allows students to enjoy the close-knit community of a small, liberal arts college. At UC San Diego, students have the best of both worlds!

est. 1974

LAVINIA Chatsworth, CA The Warren College Programs of Concentration requirement has encouraged my peers and me to seek out academic balance! Warren granted me the opportunity to take courses within which I have personal interest while exposing me to fields outside of my major and minors.

ROOSEVELT.UCSD.EDU

developing world citizens through scholarship, leadership and service

est. 1988

»» Every UC San Diego undergraduate is assigned to a college, based on the student's ranking on the UC Application and the available capacity in each college. »» Unlike many universities, UC San Diego's colleges are not organized around academic divisions. Students may select from the full range of majors regardless of college assignment. »» The colleges are residential neighborhoods on campus, each with their own residence facilities, and academic and student life professionals who provide individualized services and support.
