Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

College Life Rating

Classes keep student life filled with work and studying. Apart from this, there are always activities occurring whether it be from clubs, student organizations, or athletics. Campus events are usually pretty fun. Free time is dependent on the student's classes as well as the student themselves.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2009

College Life Rating

needed more of a social scene on campus. Since there were no sorority houses it made the social scene hard on campus people a lot of people lived off campus. UCSD was a dry campus and many people went down to Pacific beach to go to the bars
