Welcoming New Tritons

“Your journey with UC San Diego begins today and will last a lifetime.  Welcome to our Triton family.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego’s New Student Welcome Convocation marks students’ formal entry into the Triton academic community.  Last night, thousands of freshmen and transfer students assembled on RIMAC field for the traditional event that kicks off the academic year.  During the program, Chancellor Khosla encouraged students to make the most of their college experience and shared UC San Diego’s focus on student-centered initiatives and opportunities.  Student, faculty and alumni speakers also urged students to get involved in campus life and to dream big.

Faculty members line up for the opening procession and show their support for new students.
