There's lots to see on the campus from the Giesle Library to the Falling Star and many other sites. Google the Stuart Collection to find out about the many art installations on the campus. Close to the beach!

UCSD is my husband's alma mater, so we go there to a lot of Alumni functions. These are always intellectually-stimulating events. It's a beautiful campus, too. Parking is always an issue, unfortunately.
