Everything people say about UCSD is true: UCSD has no social life and it is a commuter school. Most students go home over the weekends. The classes are challenging and good.

The campus do have several open spaces but the campus is ugly. The campus buildings look like a glorified community college buildings or Cal State buildings. The architecture reminds me of Soviet minimalist architecture with very liberal use of concrete. The Dr Seuss artwork make the campus look even comical and not professional. I did not get the full college experience from UCSD. I wished I attended another college instead where there would be a mix of academics and social.

responseHahahaahahaha, your description of campus is right on:
Soviet minimalist architecture with very liberal use of concrete
that is classic!
commentActually I thought parts of it looked pseudo-Japanese, the rest of it looked European Industrial or Southern California Office Complex.
