Celebrating the Beginning of an Academic Journey

“Our goal is to provide you with the opportunities and education that will make you successful both here at UC San Diego and after you graduate.” – 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.  AS President Dominick Suvonnasupa introduced Chancellor Khosla, who shared UC San Diego’s focus on student-centered initiatives and opportunities.  Campus leaders urged students to dream big, and faculty and alumni speakers encouraged students to make the most of their college experience. 

Faculty members showed their support of students at Convocation.
