Inspiring Young Minds, Dr. Seuss Book Released

“Through his books and his legacy, Dr. Seuss continues to promote literacy and learning, and inspire countless generations of young minds.” – Chancellor Khosla

Hundreds of people flocked to the UC San Diego Geisel Library today for the newfound Dr. Seuss book, What Pet Should I Get?.  The UC San Diego Bookstore sold a limited number of copies of the book during the campus launch event.  Chancellor Khosla commented that UC San Diego is proud to be home to the Dr. Seuss Collection, the largest assembly of Theodor Geisel’s original drawings, books, memorabilia and other materials, and he expressed his gratitude to Audrey Geisel for her generosity.  What Pet Should I Get? is based on materials that were donated in 2013 by Audrey Geisel to the UC San Diego Library’s Dr. Seuss Collection.  Numerous Dr. Seuss original drawings remain on display at Geisel Library.

Nurturing Creative Minds

“What you will learn here extends beyond the typical high school curriculum, and it will help you to become our next-generation leaders.” – Chancellor Khosla

Chancellor Khosla stopped by the Jacobs School of Engineering to welcome COSMOS students to campus.  COSMOS stands for California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science.  It is a four-week summer program geared toward entering high school freshmen and exiting high school seniors with demonstrated interest and achievement in math and science.  The students live on campus and work alongside UC San Diego’s world-class faculty and researchers.  Chancellor Khosla congratulated the students on their selection for the competitive COSMOS program, and encouraged the students to continue their education in STEM fields and to consider UC San Diego as their university of choice.
