Congratulations, Class of 2017!

“You make UC San Diego a better place.  This is your home.  You are always welcome here.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego is proud of our more than 9,000 newest alumni who graduated this weekend.  Approximately 25,000 graduates and family members attended UC San Diego’s All Campus Commencement on Saturday, where His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama shared important wisdom during his keynote speech.  He told our graduates that they are the future of humanity, and it’s up to them to create a better and happier world.  Chancellor Khosla said His Holiness’s message of compassion inspires us to be better caretakers of the world and better caretakers of each other, and he expressed his pride in our graduates’ achievements.  He also urged our graduates to make a positive impact on our world, as only Tritons can.  Watch the All Campus Commencement ceremony.
