University of California, San Diego Visit Report by ancafeninja
Information Session: Yes - Went to info sessions for Warren and specific major and minors. Very helpful in regards to core requirements in the college, prerequisites for the major, and minor course requirements.
Campus Visit Notes for University of California, San Diego
Highly recommend attending on an organized day for admitted students. They supply with all the information you need on those days. There are tours of individual colleges, entire campus, library tours, lab tours, and even campus housing. Major and minor information panels, and panels on residential college information. Tables for all academic departments, student organizations, and student services.
Could feel from faculty and staff that there is a certain high expectation from students, and students are serious about their education. Not much craziness at all. People are very mature here.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
The Sheraton in town is only a block away from campus and it's just like a resort.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Eat in any of the dining halls as they are open for everyone to buy food. Food was ok, nothing special.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking is not hard to find, but it can cost some. Free parking on weekends. Shuttle services aplenty, with access to public transportation that goes to downtown SD (all free for students).
