More than 500 staff members are celebrating a milestone anniversary at UC San Diego this year, and they were honored yesterday at the 47th annual Service Awards Ceremony.  Three people were recognized for working at UC San Diego for more than 40 years.  The Chancellor expressed his appreciation to all of the hardworking staff members for their dedication to the campus and their contributions to the university community.  He also pointed out that the combined service of this year’s honorees totals more than 18 million working hours, or 8,845 years if worked by one person.

UC San Diego’s Native American Student Alliance (NASA) is dedicated to improving college access for Native youth and providing support for students on campus.  Last night, NASA hosted a special Community Welcome Dinner for new and returning Native students.  This year, two of the new students from federally recognized tribal communities received the Chancellor’s Associates Scholarship, which Chancellor Khosla initiated last year to enable and broaden the path to education for our local students.  Chancellor Khosla acknowledged their achievements at the dinner and presented them with Triton honor cords. 

Encouraging Transfer Students to Choose UC San Diego

“One of the most important things I tell people about UC San Diego is that we are a student-centered university.” – Chancellor Khosla 

UC San Diego hosted the largest on-campus transfer student recruitment program of the year last Friday.  The annual Fall Transfer Day attracted more than 200 prospective transfer students and their family members to campus.  Welcoming the crowd, Chancellor Khosla spoke about the university’s commitment to providing transfer students with the environment they need to succeed, including a student-centered university, award-winning faculty and upgraded technology in classrooms.

During Fall Transfer Day, prospective transfer students and their families learn about admissions, financial aid and research opportunities for undergraduates.  They also take tours of campus, including a stop at the transfer housing neighborhood at The Village at Torrey Pines.
