Collecting Supplies for Local Schools

The 10th annual UC San Diego School Supply Drive kicks off today.  All of the collected school supplies will be distributed to students at 16 local elementary, middle and high schools.  Collection boxes are located all over campus, including one in the Chancellor’s office.  This year, organizers also set up a campus Amazon Wish List for those who want to participate but have no time to shop.  Staff, faculty and students are encouraged to donate new school supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes, gently used binders and children’s books.  University materials will not be accepted.  The drive runs through August 26.

Tritons on the Move

There is no doubt that UC San Diego is a global university.  Triton alumni and researchers are on every continent and in every ocean around our world.  You never know where you might run into a fellow Triton.  Prime example – Chancellor Khosla recently rendezvoused with alumnus Luke Hazelwood on a flight from the Bay Area to San Diego.  Fellow travelers on Southwest can also check out the airline’s magazine to see UC San Diego prominently featured.  Look in that backseat pocket the next time you fly or view this recent ad featuring alumna Manuelita Brown.
