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.
