A fresh crop of prospective freshman students explored UC San Diego for Triton Day Saturday, in a festival welcoming newly admitted students.
The university expected more than 25,000 prospective students to attend Triton Day, for the annual festival that showcases the variety of quality educations offered at the campus.
Hundreds of campus volunteers helped organize a full day of activities, said university officials. That included campus tours, information fairs and entertainment for prospective students.
A “Microsoft Experience” tent was open to admitted students and their families for them to enjoy the gaming lounge and learn about Microsoft Technology, said university officials.
Triton Day also happened to coincide with the 39th Annual Cultural Celebration at Thurgood Marshall College, where attendees could sample world cuisine, watch dance performances and enjoy music while browsing through artisan crafts from a variety of local merchants and vendors, according to the university.
The annual showcase of Triton Day was held from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for faculty, staff and students at the UCSD Library Walk.
Groups welcomed new students with plenty of Triton spirit to go around. Here are some social media highlights from the day:
One campus group, the UCSD Undocumented Students Service Center, presented their support for undocumented immigrants attending the university.
