Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Campus housing policy is extremely strict in regards to illegal substances.
  • Challenging a residence hall violation will do nothing, no matter how persuasive your argument is.
  • Even though you pay a lot of money to park, security monitoring your car is not that effective and not much of a priority.
  • Having classes at night so you can sleep in the next morning isn't the best of ideas.
  • If you are caught riding your skateboard across campus, you risk paying a nice fine.
  • If you wear socks with your sandals, you will be shunned, and rightfully so.
  • Mexico is only fun the first few times you go.
  • Panda Express is addictive; once you start, you can't stop.
  • People here tend to dress in the latest fashions and take great pride in their appearance.
  • The campus is large; be prepared to walk around a lot.
  • There are a lot of college kids in San Diego, especially community college kids.
  • Watch out for future construction zones when apartment hunting.
  • When you tell people you go to school here, expect the "party school" response.
  • Your parents make you pay for your own things in college, empty their wallets while you still can.
  • Zura Hall is the most rundown of all the dorms.
