UCSD Alumni

 

Admissions, Recruitment, Retention and Pre-Arrival

 



Alumni volunteers support the efforts of Admissions and Relations with Schools to help recruit the most talented and diverse new Tritons. Opportunities to engage with students at each stage of the admissions process are available locally and around the world.  




College Fairs

August-November


Are you a Triton
bursting with UC San Diego spirit? Share your enthusiasm by serving as an alumni volunteer to help recruit highly motivated and ambitious students to UC San Diego. Interact with prospective students and families from your community and encourage them to choose UCSD.

Volunteers will meet high school and community college students, share their personal Triton experience, and answer general questions about applying to UCSD. You will be paired with a UCSD Admissions officer. College fairs are hosted in California and beyond from September through November. Sign up to share your Triton pride at a College Fair near you, and make a difference in the life of a future student.

Triton Day – San Diego and Regional

Each Spring, we welcome over 10,000 admitted students, families and friends to explore UC San Diego and learn what it means to be a Triton. Help share the Triton tale by talking with guests and teaching them about campus life. Continue the legacy by attracting the next explorer, inventor, or author to UC San Diego.

Summer Send-Offs

July-September

For more than 20 years, regional alumni clubs have hosted the annual Summer Send-Off for incoming Tritons. New students can meet UC San Diego alumni and hear tales of surf, sun and studies. This is a special day for incoming students and their families. Make new friends, celebrate the Triton family and all things UCSD. Summer Send Offs are scheduled across the U.S. every summer.
