UC San Diego partnered with the Urban League of San Diego County for the 26th annual Golden Pyramid Awards to recognize high-achieving high school seniors from underrepresented communities in San Diego. The awards ceremony was held on campus on Saturday. All of the nearly 40 students received medals from the Urban League and a few students received scholarships from the Urban League and the USS Midway Museum. At the event, Chancellor Khosla congratulated the students on their hard work and encouraged them to consider UC San Diego as their university of choice.
Several UC San Diego departments participated in an informational fair after the event so students and families could learn more about what UC San Diego has to offer—from financial aid to campus community centers.
