ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)
ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
Thank you to everyone who made UC San Diego's Open House 2006 a huge success. We had more than 7,500 visitors on our campus for the Open House event on Saturday, October 21.
This year's theme was fitting - UCSD Rocks! We had a booming career fair with a steady stream of interested candidates filing into the Price Center, and throughout the day prospective students and their parents took tours of the campus. Hundreds of employees and students staffed more than 150 booths, offering information about their university organizations and departments. There was plenty of fun and entertainment, including our first-ever "Battle of the Bands," a rock-climbing wall, and a variety of food opportunities. La Nueva 106.5 FM radio station broadcast live from the School of Medicine campus.
I want to thank everyone who volunteered their time to host our visitors, and show our community what a wonderful university we have and what we have to offer. Also, a special thank you to the Open House Committee for pulling the event together and getting the word out to the community, on and off campus.
