We drove through the campus when we missed our turn onto Torrey Pines Rd. If I had gone to college here, I'm not sure how much studying I would have done. It's located near the coast in La Jolla, but not waterfront. UCal Santa Barbara...More

I don;t think a campus can get better than this, in terms of location. Great university. Spent a couple of days here for training a while ago and then visited again. After some hard work-out of your brain, you can relax by watching the pacific...More

UCSD has such a neat campus. I used to go there running every couple of weeks. Tourists must take a look at the Geisel library. If you have more time, go for a run/walk in the UCSD woods meant for cross-country runners.
