ARI The coolest thing about going to UC San Diego is definitely the six college system. It doesn't matter what major you are or what you are studying. You still get that diversity of being with everybody, but you’re in these smaller groups, which means I'm on a first name basis with my Deans, my Academic Advisors and my Counselors, and that's something that is really unique to us.
