Chancellor Khosla met with several new members of the Chancellor’s Community Advisory Board to thank them for their willingness to serve and to discuss campus priorities and initiatives.  Board members serve as advocates and advisors, providing insight and counsel on ways UC San Diego can strengthen ties with the community. 

Inducting a New Class of Academic Scholars

“We are here for you, our students, to provide you with the best possible college experience.  We will give you the tools and opportunities you need to develop into successful global citizens.  We want you to be change agents of this world and positively impact our society.”

- 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 at RIMAC Field for the traditional event that kicks off the academic year.  During the program, Chancellor Khosla told the new students that their journeys as Tritons are just beginning, but they will last a lifetime.  Keynote speaker, Professor Carol Padden, let students know that our faculty are here for them, and urged students to keep an open mind while learning and growing at UC San Diego. 

At the end of the program, students were encouraged to write down an “I will” statement – a goal to achieve either at UC San Diego or during their lifetime.  They were then invited to meet with faculty and eat dinner under the stars.

Chancellor Welcomes New Students to UC San Diego

Chancellor Khosla hands out cookies to new students on Ridge Walk.

Welcome Week is officially underway at UC San Diego, and Chancellor Khosla was among the first campus leaders to greet our new students at today’s Triton Power Hour.  Thousands of freshmen and transfer students packed RIMAC auditorium for the annual pep rally event, where students won prizes and learned more about UC San Diego Athletics.  The students then headed out to Ridge Walk for the Student Services Fair to check out the booths and activities.  The resource fair provides information on everything from athletics and recreation clubs to academic majors and central service departments.  During the fair, Chancellor Khosla and Interim Vice Chancellor – Student Affairs Alan Houston chatted with the new students and handed out cookies.
