agreement to its part in 1958, and the UC, convinced that all its other conditions would be met, approved construction of the new campus in 1960. Herbert York was designated its first chancellor, and he worked out the planning of the main campus according to the "Oxbridge" model, relying on many of Revelle’s ideas. By 1963, new facilities on the mesa been finished for the School of Science and Engineering, and new buildings were under construction for Social Sciences and Humanities. Ten additional faculty in those disciplines were hired, and the whole site was designated the First College of the new campus. The campus accepted its first undergraduate class of 181 freshman in 1964, and was designated Revelle College the next [9][10][11] year. In 2007, UC San Diego became the first university in the western region to top $1 billion in their fundraising campaign.[12] To date, more than $1.01 billion dollars in private support has been designated to the university.[13] In 2009, UC San Diego mistakenly sent Admit Day welcome emails to all its 47,000 freshmen applicants, instead of just the 17,000 who had been admitted. However, school officials quickly realized the mistake and sent an apology email within two hours.[14][15] Chancellor Fox later joked about the incident, saying: “It’s generated a little bit of interest in the mail coming in, but I say that you can’t buy advertisement like that.”[15]

History

Star III, in front of Scripps Institution of Oceanography When the Regents of the University of California originally authorized the San Diego campus in 1956, it was planned to start as a graduate school of science and engineering comparable in quality to Caltech. Citizens of San Diego enthusiastically supported the idea, voting the same year to transfer to the university 59 acres (240,000 m2) of mesa land on the coast near the Scripps Institute. General Dynamics Corporation donated a large sum of money to be used for recruiting a distinguished founding faculty. In 1957, an undergraduate curriculum was planned as part of the general science curriculum, and Roger Revelle, Director of Scripps, was named dean of the new school. UC San Diego was the first general campus of the UC to be designed "from the top down" in terms of curricular and research emphasis. Stellar faculty were recruited as they became available as opposed to the dictates of a preplanned curriculum or academic schedule. The graduate division of the school opened in 1960, when it had 20 faculty in residence, with instruction offered in the fields of physics, biology, chemistry and earth science. Classes initially met in the Scripps Institute. Before the selection of San Diego was made final, however, the Regents requested an additional gift of 550 acres (2.2 km2) of undeveloped mesa land northeast of Scripps, as well as 500 acres (2 km²) in Camp Matthews, a United States Marine Corps rifle range adjacent to the site. The city voted in

The undergraduate program is a full-time, four-year program offering 125 art, science, and professional majors. There is a high graduate coexistence and the graduate instructional program is classified as a comprehensive.[5][7] Courses and programs at UC San Diego are organized into four disciplinary divisions including: Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences. Graduate and professional schools include the Jacobs School of Engineering, the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, the Rady School of Management, the School of Medicine, and the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

core education program on a crosscultural interdisciplinary course sequence entitled "Making of the Modern World". 6. Sixth College, founded in 2002 with a focus on "historical and philosophical connections among culture, art and technology."

Undergraduate colleges
Undergraduates may major in any discipline offered at UC San Diego, but general education and core writing requirements vary according to a residential college system. Undergraduate housing is organized around a system of residential colleges modeled after those at the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, and somewhat similar to the systems at Princeton University. The colleges each have their own campuses, places of residence, and offices. Each college issues unique undergraduate diplomas and holds an individual commencement ceremony. UC San Diego’s six colleges are: 1. Revelle College, founded in 1964 as First College, has highly structured requirements. 2. John Muir College, founded in 1967 as Second College, emphasizes a "spirit of self-sufficiency and individual choice" and offers loosely structured generaleducation requirements. 3. Thurgood Marshall College, founded in 1970 as Third College, emphasizes "scholarship, social responsibility and the belief that a liberal arts education must include an understanding of [one’s] role in society". 4. Earl Warren College, founded in 1974 as Fourth College, requires students to pursue a major of their choice while also requiring two "programs of concentration" in disciplines unrelated to each other and to their major "toward a life in balance". 5. Eleanor Roosevelt College, founded in 1988 as Fifth College, which focuses its

respectively. The average ACT Composite Score is 28. Of the 17,000 freshmen that were admitted, 99% were in the top ten percent of their high school class.[41] The top four overlapping schools for applicants are: UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, and Stanford 31% of admitted students receive federal Pell grants.[42] Graduate admissions are largely centralized through the Office of Graduate Studies. However, the Rady School of Management, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS) handle their own admissions.

Outreach
Professional Education and Public Service Division
UC San Diego Extension is the continuing education and public program branch of the university. As part of their goal, Extension strives to combine local impact with national reputation and global reach. The Extension has been recognized for linking the community to expert professionals and the knowledge resources of the university. Approximately 20,000 students per year are enrolled into the university-level professional courses. The Extension provides over 100 certificate programs and over 25 specialized study programs. Most courses are held evenings and weekends for the convenience to working adults at one of the four locations: UC San Diego main campus in La Jolla, the Extension Sorrento Mesa Center, the Extension Rancho Bernardo Center, and the Extension Mission Valley Center.

Charter school
The Preuss School is a charter school established on the UCSD campus in 1999 to provide an intensive college preparatory curriculum for low-income students from the greater San Diego area. The Preuss school has been ranked as one of the top ten best high schools in the United States by US News & World Report.[43]

Admissions
UC San Diego received 47,037 freshmen applicants for the Fall 2009, and admitted 37.5% [40]. Also, the number of students applying to UC San Diego makes it the third most popular UC campus, after UCLA and UC Berkeley.[41] Admitted students attained a mean weighted high school GPA of 4.09 and average SAT scores of 630, 671, and 642 for Critical Reading, Math and Writing,

The main student hub is the Price Center located in the center of campus, just south of Geisel Library. The Price Center offers a variety of services, places, and spaces geared to the needs of students including restaurants, the central bookstore, movie theater, and various student organizations. In the Spring of 2003 a Student Referendum was passed to expand the Price Center to nearly double the original size. The Price Center East expansion was officially opened to the public on May 19, 2008. [44]

Price Center known as the Associated Students (A.S.). The Associated Students also funds three quarterly festivals during the year: FallFest, WinterFest, and Sun God. The Sun God Festival, named after the statue created by artist Niki de Saint Phalle, is the best-known of the three festivals. During the event, there are day long series of concerts, performances, free items, and celebration before the final free concert takes place in the evening.

the end of the third (Spring) academic quarter, respectively. The Watermelon Drop is one of the campus’s oldest traditions, famously originating in 1965 from a physics exam question centering on the velocity on impact of a dropped object. A group of intrigued students pursued that line of thought by dropping a watermelon from the top floor of Revelle’s Urey Hall to measure the size of the resulting splat. A variety of events surround the Watermelon Drop, including a pageant where an occasionally male but generally female "Watermelon Queen" is elected. In 1979 the Queen rode to Urey Hall in a theatricalprop sedan chair that had been knocking around the Revelle dorms for years. The Pumpkin Drop is a similar event celebrated by the dropping of a large, candy-filled pumpkin from 11-story Tioga Hall, the tallest residential building on the Muir college campus. Each of the undergraduate colleges focuses on enhancing student life through various programs and organizations as well as through residential life programs. Upon admission to UC San Diego, each undergraduate student is assigned to a college. Currently there are six colleges—Revelle, Muir, Marshall, Roosevelt, Warren, and Sixth College (not yet named). The college a student is assigned to determines their General Education requirements. Each college also has a unique college specific writing class that all students must take. Each college has its own college council (student council) as well. The campus’s graduate population is represented by a separate formal student government, known as the Graduate Student Association (GSA). The Association’s membership comprises representatives from each of the graduate departments. The number of representatives is proportional to the number of graduate students within that particular department. Additionally, graduate students who serve as teaching or research assistants are represented by the UC-wide union of Academic Student Employees, UAW Local 2865. There are also three campus centers that cultivate a sense of community among faculty, staff, and students: the Cross-Cultural Center, the Women’s Center and the LGBT Resource Center. UC San Diego was the last UC campus to have such centers. All three centers, especially the Cross-Cultural Center that was created first, were founded in the mid-1990s and were the result of student

movements that demanded change despite opposition by the campus administration.[45] One of the more controversial aspects of student life at UCSD is the student-run comedy paper, The Koala, a satirical paper often criticized for its provocative articles and drawings, which is also funded by the A.S.[46] In 2005, the student council made national news over a controversy regarding pornography broadcast over the A.S.-funded television station by members of The Koala. The campus newspaper, operated independent of student funds, is the UCSD Guardian. The campus also hosts a small independent radio station, KSDT, which no longer broadcasts over the airwaves, but still operates online. There is a music venue on the campus grounds of some fame called The Che Cafe, a collective organization serving multiple functions as an underground music venue, vegan food collective, center for grassroots organizations such as Food Not Bombs, and similar groups and activities. Prominent local San Diego bands such as The Locust and Pinback, and national tours such as Mates of State and Dillinger Escape Plan have given the Che Cafe some fame and praise as a radical vegan collective despite its small size (it fits a few hundred people) and limited sound equipment.

Public art
More than a dozen public art projects, part of the Stuart Collection, decorate the campus. Perhaps the most famous of these is the Sun God, a large winged creature located near the Faculty Club. Other Stuart Collection art includes a collection of Stonehenge-like stone blocks, a large coiling snake path, a building that flashes the names of vices and virtues in bright neon lights, and three metallic Eucalyptus trees, the Music Tree, the Literary Tree and the Third Tree commonly referred to as the Silent Tree. One of the newest additions to the collection is Tim Hawkinson’s giant teddy bear made of six boulders located in between the newly constructed Calit2 buildings.[17] Another notable campus sight are the graffiti tunnels of Mandeville Hall, a series of corridors that have been tagged with graffiti by generations of students over decades of use. Students in the university’s visual arts department also often create temporary public art installations as part of their coursework. The university is also sponsoring

Athletic mascot, the Tritons the school participated at the Division III level and won numerous national championships.[52] Until the 2007-2008 school year, UC San Diego was the only DII school that did not offer athletic scholarships. In 2005, the NCAA created a rule that made it mandatory for DII programs to award athletic grants; a measure was proposed to begin offering $500 "grants-in-aid" to all 600 intercollegiate athletes in order to meet this requirement. In February 2007, a $78 fee referendum was passed in the largest vote in UC San Diego history. This fee increase put the UCSD athletic department budget on par with rival DII schools for the first time since the transition.[53] The new monies will go primarily to bringing talented coaching staff salaries up to competitive levels.[54] In 2006-2007, UC San Diego’s best season since moving to DII, 19 of 23 athletic programs qualified for post-season competition, including 17 to the NCAA Championships. Eight of those teams finished in the top-5 in the nation. UC San Diego fields a number of club sports teams. The UC San Diego surfing team has won the national title six times and is consistently rated one of the best surfing programs in the nation. The UC San Diego triathlon team is continually one of the top triathlon teams in the nation. In 2008, the women’s triathlon team won the US

UCSD Television
UCSD-TV transmitted its first moments on air in 1993.[48] Over the last 15 years it has spread to over 1 million televisions sets and produces 150 programs a year.[49] The station focuses on diverse and intellectual subject matter.[50] UCSD-TV’s "Health Matters" production has been honored with an Emmy, and the station as a whole has received various Telly Awards.[51]

Athletics
UC San Diego offers student participation in a wide range of sports including swimming, water polo, soccer, volleyball, crew, track and field, fencing, basketball, golf, cross country, softball, baseball, and tennis, many of which have become perennial strengths. UC San Diego participates at the NCAA’s Division II (DII) level in the California Collegiate Athletic Association, although water polo, fencing, and men’s volleyball compete at the Division I level. Before joining DII in 2000,

UC San Diego also has sport clubs in badminton, cycling, dancesport, dance team, equestrian, ice hockey, lacrosse, roller hockey, rugby union, sailing, soccer, snow skiing, table tennis, ultimate, volleyball, water polo, and water skiing.[55] The National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) 2007 Collegiate Power Rankings[56] rate colleges and universities comprehensively based on student-athlete graduation rates, academic strength and athletic prowess of the university. The institutions posted in the 2007 Power Rankings represent less than 6% of colleges and universities across the nation[57]. UC San Diego placed 4th on the overall ranking list, trailing behind Williams College, Amherst College, and Duke University, and first on the Division II list.

Alumni
The UCSD Alumni Association was formed by a small group of honorary members in 1964. The Association has grown today to represent over 116,000 alumni. Its mission is to foster a lifelong, mutually beneficial relationship of alumni and students with UC San Diego. The Association works to provide alumni with continued access to the resources of the University, communicate UC San Diego news and happenings, and facilitate a network for alumni and student interaction through UCSD Alumni Activities and Programs. The Association also awards undergraduate scholarships, recognizes outstanding alumni, faculty and students, assists the University with legislative advocacy, and brings alumni together in social, educational and networking forums – in San Diego and across the nation.
