"Congratulations on your admission to UC San Diego. You are the students we want on our campus." - Chancellor Khosla
UC San Diego’s newly admitted Black first-year students received a warm welcome from current students, staff, faculty, campus leaders, alumni and community members on Friday night at the 5th annual Black Family Get-Together. The dinner event preceded UC San Diego’s Triton Day for all admitted students and their families. Student leaders Noble Dwarika and Nandi Taylor kicked off the celebration by congratulating admitted students and introducing Chancellor Khosla. He talked about the strength of UC San Diego’s academics and our supportive community, and encouraged the students to choose UC San Diego.
Other speakers included Director of the Black Resource Center Stacia Solomon and Senior Academic Advisor Stephanie Muldrow, who is an alumna. The Black Student Union also hosted an overnight program for admitted students.
