Walk around the campus amongst the eucaliptus trees and modern buildings. When you get on campus ask at a gate for a map of the outdoor sculptures and be sure to see the main library (named after Dr. Seus). An upside down glass pyramid, it is great site (and sight). Go inside--usually they have an interesting exhibit.

The UCSD campus offers a little bit for everyone. Interested in Art? Check out the Stuart Art Collection with different pieces spread all over campus. Love a good pub crawl, well start off at the loft, adds a few stops for saki then beers, then head up to home plate to finish off at the on campus sports bar. Athletics fan? UCSD has some of the best ranked team in the D2, and some in D1. Or if you want to workout your self UCSD offers some of the best facilites around, plus you can go for a run in the eucalyptus forest. Whether you are going to school at UCSD or just visiting, it is a beautiful campus that has a lot to offer.

A beautifully designed campus. I could have stayed at the Geisel Library for at least a week! I liked how the campus is beautifully landscaped and how solar panels are used on many of the buildings.

The campus is an ode to itself. Very brash and not very inviting, which is sad since they spend so much or our money.
