Morning


Rise and Shine, we are headed to begin our tour as we travel to San Diego and

University of San Diego (USD). USD is the home of the Toreros, a private

Catholic Jesuit university that commands a hilltop view of San Diego’s

Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean. USD has a little over 5000 undergraduate

students and offers more than 60 majors. USD has very well-respected natural

science programs and support assistance for those hoping to pursue medicine.

USD also offers many unique programs such as undergraduate research

opportunities, the Kroc Center for Peace and Social Justice as well as a

campus-wide emphasis on service and the connection to the community through the

campus Changemaker program.


You will have the chance to tour the campus and meet USD students and staff

before moving on to our next stop: University of California San Diego (UCSD)


Afternoon


Don’t worry, we aren’t losing sight of the ocean after lunch as we head just a

short distance north to the beautiful community of La Jolla and the main

campus of the University of California San Diego (UCSD). With more than

28,000 undergraduate students, who have more than 200 majors from which to

choose their academic direction, UCSD is one of the most beautiful UC

campuses. It has always been known for the strength of its science programs

and its relationship with cooperative research groups such as Qualcomm

Institute, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, the Kavil Institute for Brain

and Mind and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, but UCSD is well

respected for its varied social science, natural science, humanities and fine

arts programs as well.


Students will have the chance to enjoy lunch in one of the student dining

halls and speak with current students about their campus and academic

experience and then have a campus tour, before moving onto the next stop: San

Diego State University (SDSU).


Mid-Afternoon


San Diego State University (SDSU) is part of the California State University

system and is one of the oldest CSUs founded in 1897. It is also one of the


largest CSU campuses with almost 35,000 undergraduate students. SDSU is

highly regarded for its student research opportunities, its strong alumni

network and its ethnic diversity. The beauty of the campus and its vast

program offerings are what make SDSU one of the most sought-after CSU

campuses.


After a campus tour and the chance to attend a school lecture or event, you

will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner at one of the many student dining

halls, and attend a campus event before heading back to Western Center Academy.
