And now—where the two directions of
past and future meet, it is up to you to
bring the spirit forward.
UC San Diego started as a vision
and grew into the university where
you chose to belong. Now, 170,000
alumni later, the future of UC San
Diego is a vision we can all share,
one we can all make real, and one
that will make a difference:
Make a difference for students who walk in your path,
with an education that is accessible and affordable to all.
So that as our alumni ranks continue to grow, every Triton
unleashed on the world is well prepared, supported, and poised
to make the impact UC San Diego is known for. Whether it’s the
next great playwright or a trailblazing climate scientist, the next
daring astronaut or a life-saving surgeon, support of students is
support for our future and what they will make of it.
Make a difference in our community. We built ourselves
from the ground up, now we open ourselves up—our campus
and the work we do. With intellectual and cultural offerings for
all to take part in, together we’re building the means to share
the wonder of the arts, the thrill of scientific discovery and the
marvel of technology. Consider your university becoming one
without boundaries or borders; think of returning to a campus
where with one look, you know you have arrived. You can help
make this happen, and shape what the world will come to know
as UC San Diego.
Make a difference in the world—just as we have for all
these decades. We continue our legacy of research, discovery,
breakthroughs and innovations, all for the sake of improving life
on this planet. It’s been our style from the start—to dive deeper,
to challenge convention, to be the place where education means
passing along the spirit of curiosity and the boldness to question
the given traditions, and to create our own: a risk-taking,
rule-breaking, can-only-happen-here nontradition.
So face it, Tritons. Clearly, you are different. Now it’s time to
make a difference.
