“Wow. Like a movie set”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We had just come from UCLA and looked at UCSD. What a contrast. The trees, buildings and atmosphere are really something to see.

“Beautiful campus w/good bookstore”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We took public transit out to the UCSD. It is a GORGEOUS campus! It was a long trip by trolley but worth it. Saw a lot of the local terrain on the way.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Every student including parents would dream to attend this resort like school in beautiful La Jolla, my son, my daughter, two of my nephews, even my husband, had wonderful dreams after his 1st visit, for our son's tour 18 years ago, then many visits till our daughter graduated 6 years ago, this time we only drove by, did not notice much change of UCSD, what changed is how we view the high cost of college education, with our frugal daughter, still around $80k for 4 years, with her sr. software developer job now at well known social media company, we both agreed it's definitely not cheap, but well well well worth it!

“Stuart Art Collection”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Wanted to see the Stuart Art collection at UCSD on our same trip to Torrey Pines. I would advise getting the map of the 3.4 mile campus loop @ stuartcollection@ucsdedu/map. We saw the snake path, bear & house hanging off side of building (my favorite). The library looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. If you're interested in unique sculptures this is definitely worth a trip. If not, the pub is worth a visit!
