UCSD has a large campus filled with numerous places of interest. Overall, it is a great school with lots of diversity and scenery. What I like the most is definitely the graffiti room in the Mandeville Center. The entire room is covered in graffiti, creating a very artistic work.
great school. needs more of a social life. Would help if San Diego wasnt a town where all college kids drove to their campus's. Most people lived off campus from there school. I wish the school was structured more like UCSB
