Developing Future Leaders

Chancellor Khosla recently attended a reunion at the Computer Science and Engineering Department, which brought together current and former tutors.  The tutor program assists students in developing strong problem solving skills and helps them create a solid foundation in the fundamentals. The program has grown rapidly, along with the department and demand for CSE experts and education.  The tutor program has more than 3,000 alumni. At the event, the Chancellor thanked the tutors for their service and for playing an integral role in the lives of other students at UC San Diego.  He also talked about the growing reputation and leadership of UC San Diego in computer science and engineering, highlighting the new Halıcıoğlu Institute for Data Science and thanking alumnus and former tutor Taner Halıcıoğlu for his generosity and vision in establishing the institute.

The campus was abuzz with activity all weekend with more than 15,000 prospective students and their family members attending Triton Day on Saturday and more than 4,000 people participating in the Triton 5K on Sunday.  Chancellor Khosla was among the campus leaders, faculty, staff and students who welcomed admitted students to campus, and encouraged them to explore the undergraduate colleges, residence and dining halls, academic departments and student services.  Triton Day is an opportunity for admitted students to learn about all of the opportunities offered at UC San Diego and meet their future friends and faculty.  The Triton 5K benefits student scholarships and has raised nearly $4 million since its inception.  After the race, runners and walkers enjoyed a festival with live music, food and interactive experiences.

A breakfast was held at the Faculty Club for admitted Regents Scholars.

Directors from UC San Diego’s resource centers welcome admitted students at a community lunch.
