College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had to had to move off campus yet so am still on campus.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Well to go off campus it would be great to have a car... something I don't have and the bus system is just ok here not the greatest thing.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Just be nice to the campus police and they'll be nice with you. And if you're going to drink be smart about it, be discreet.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you really really look for it you could find those really awesome parties you want to go to again and again. Sadly since we are on the quarter system it does force you to study since exams follow up very soon.

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.
