“UC San Diego Tritons are courageous, curious and driven. We take risks, push the frontiers of knowledge and challenge conventional thinking. We break things—not with abandon, but with conviction—because we know we can make them better.”

Welcoming New Students

The fall quarter has officially begun, and Chancellor Khosla, along with UC San Diego staff, faculty and alumni, welcomed the largest-ever incoming class at this year’s New Student Welcome Convocation and Dinner. Chancellor Khosla talked about UC San Diego’s efforts to enhance the student experience—including adding more housing; degree programs such as Real Estate and Development and Business Psychology; and campus amenities. He encouraged students to seize opportunities while on campus and to stay involved beyond graduation, stating once a Triton, always a Triton. After the faculty and alumni keynotes, new students were invited to meet with faculty and eat dinner on RIMAC Field.
