My wife and I strolled the campus on a Friday afternoon and found it most enjoyable. There was live music and several student groups barbecuing to raise money. The sites and sounds provided a wonderful backdrop for a leisurely walk.

I went to SDSU but a friend of mine studied at UCSD so I decided to go there once to see the campus. It was totally worth it! In general Californian university campuses are more impressive than other ones so this one is a great example why. It is really large and got some nice buildings like the unusual building of the university library or the San Diego Supercomputer Center. There are some footpaths to walk what I've never seen before at any university. If you got some free time and don't know what to do, go there!

There are 18 outdoor nationally acclaimed art pieces that dot the campus which you download a map for locations. Don't miss "Fallen Star", the cottage on top of the engineering bldg. Amazing! Also, the huge teddy bear is a must see. All free and a nice family activity.

We happened to be staying right next to the campus, and I like universities, so we took a couple hours to stroll around. It was a nice campus, no question, and we certainly had a pleasant walk and enjoyed looking at the interesting buildings, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there.
