Each year in April, UC San Diego’s admitted students are invited to campus for an uplifting event as part of Triton Days. Designed to give potential Tritons the opportunity to envision their futures as members of our inclusive campus community, this series of events culminates with a campus celebration showcasing all UC San Diego has to offer. Each participant is offered the chance to explore our beautiful campus, ask questions of professors and say a first hello to potential career colleagues and lifelong friends. They learn more about the vast array of opportunities and resources offered to support their well-being and continued success. This moment represents a pivotal point in their academic careers as many make the life-changing decision to enroll at top-ranked UC San Diego. It’s an empowering and inspiring day.
Acceptance to our prestigious university signifies the culmination of a lifetime of hard work, dedication and commitment to excellence. This year, UC San Diego received a record-breaking number of applications for admission. These accepted students should be exceedingly proud of their standout accomplishments. Each applicant was carefully selected for admission based on a unique combination of academic excellence, demonstrated achievement and potential to excel in our rigorous, collaborative learning environment. It was a privilege to welcome them and feel their enthusiasm for this exceptional campus.
Our incoming Triton students choose UC San Diego as the ideal destination to cultivate their curiosity and nurture their academic and creative pursuits. They are inspired by our collaborative, interdisciplinary mission, world-class faculty and extensive research opportunities. They appreciate the arts and culture celebrated among our diverse and vibrant student body. And they seek to challenge their brilliant minds, drive innovation and create positive change in our world. As leaders and changemakers, they see themselves living and learning at this state-of-the-art campus and becoming thriving members of our welcoming Triton community. For these students, UC San Diego is the perfect match.
Year after year, Triton Days showcase an exciting glimpse into the future of our community as we engage the scholars who will soon join us. Our future students brim with optimism as they envision their dreams and ambitions at this student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university. I look forward to welcoming many on campus in the fall as they embark upon this journey and say yes to UC San Diego.
