Covered with green trees all around providing shade for the students to relax and take a break from studying on those hot California days. Art pieces can be seen around the school when walking from one class to another. The best part about the campus would have to be its proximity to the beach. Students can have fun in the sun after classes or a long day of studying for midterms. The UCSD campus also offers a breathtaking view of the ocean, perfect for seeing the sunset.
