4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe at my university. There has been few instances where police have been involved, but from what I understand these situations are relatively uneventful

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly do not have enough experience with the professors to give an accurate rating since I have not started school yet.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had an internship for over a year and it has really set me apart from the other students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You can ask for a security guard to escort you anywhere on campus which is great.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoy the housing options here at UCSD. Where I stay, all the housing buildings are close together, so meeting up with friends is easy.

Athletics: I have only attended one sporting event thus far and it was enjoyable. Lot's of school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The enrollment process was easy and didn't take much time, but I would have preferred a better appointment time. The orientation was good and I met a lot of new people. I feel like I didn't learn much at orientation even though it was two days full of seminars.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a non-marine ecology major, so things are scarce for me. Pre-meds, engineers, marine-bios and business majors don't have this problem, but they have more competition.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Super safe, but it's still a huge and poorly lit campus. PLEASE use campus escorts when walking home late at night alone. There have been instances but they are avoidable.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

When students contemplate their overall experience at UCSD, they usually base their opinions around the friends they have made and the good memories they have. Although academics at UCSD are world-class, they are not always the most important factor in the overall experience. Social life at UCSD is known to be a little boring. Many students wish they had a more active social life, but most still manage to find friends with whom they create lasting memories.

After adjusting to life at a large university, students say they enjoyed their time at UCSD and could not imagine going anywhere else. They especially like living in such a beautiful area and attending a challenging research university. Living on your own in college is an invaluable experience and teaches many students just as much as lectures and labs. Most of all, students are appreciative of their friends, and the people they meet have the biggest impact on their overall experience.
