The University of California, San Diego provides a great education as well as a wonderful environment for students around the world. The courses are both challenging and intriguing. The separation of colleges within the university is a good way of forming communities on campus and making the overall experience at UCSD more personal without secluding any student. The campus promotes and practices acceptance to people no matter their race, beliefs, gender, etc.
