University Of California - Review
Even if you're not a student looking to join there is a lot to see in their beautiful and prestigious college campus. The strange architectural meld of the main buildings, leading to a title as one of the ugliest campuses in the country. Not everyone agrees though, especially the visitors and the students. A quick walking tour should take you through:
- Geisel Library: The most striking building on campus, with Brutalist Architecture, named after Dr. Seuss, and looking just as quirky as his stories Eucalyptus groves.
- Birch Aquarium and museum: 3,000 Animals representing 380 species, on a hilltop.
- Public art, comprised most of the Stuart Collection, which is a collection of quirky sculpture.
- University Art Gallery
- The Loft: A student performance lounge.
- La Jolla Playhouse: Not-for-profit, professional theatre.
Free public tours begin at 2pm on Sundays in front of the Gilman Entrance Information Center.

University Of California, San Diego Reviews
Good faculty for the most part. The most unbiased are in the Political Science department if you can believe that. Professors outside of that department tend to show their biases more often. If you come here as a conservative, you WILL have your views challenged, which is important for personal growth. If you come here as a liberal, you will probably never have your views challenged, and you will end up being triggered into a psychotic episode when you get back to the real world. Advice for liberal-minded students looking to attend classes here: Search out conservative students and befriend them. Anyway, the education system in CA is a racket. Get everything you can out of them, and pinch your pennies. Oh, and the morons sent my degree through the USPS. It was bent when it got to me. I almost puked when I saw Jerry Brown's signature on the degree as well. Good riddance, CA. My home state is a liberal cesspool bent on penalizing the productive and paying the lazy a basic income so they keep voting because the poor outnumber the middle and upper class. Nothing says "vote for me" like free stuff. Does it FEEL good? Probably. Does it DO good? probably not.
Great doctors,AWESOME Cafeteria in Thornton Hospital that has a wood burning pizza that is delicious!! Gorgeous lobby with huge palm trees inside that grow to the ceiling ! Excellent concierge that provide volunteer services, infused water stand, and there is even valet parking. This is going to the doctor a stylish event..
We came to visit. Ali, she was our tour guide. Fantastic, she gave us a good tour and answered all our questions. I am sure she is a success and will have great future. University is amazing 7.5 times bigger than Disney land and library has 5 billion, plus books. We loved it.
UCSD campus is amazing and it's location is great as it is close to la Jolla Cove and beach.What fun!!
