    there are a lot of clubs to join, whether it be stem based, cultural, even some long standing traditional activities, like the watermelon drop at revelle.

    The beach is a short walk or a bus ride away, you can go there between classes if you want. There's a bus to Gaslamp District in San Diego if you want to explore the city a bit more. The cliffs are a great place to see the sunset. The recreation centers hold various classes that go from fencing to archery to kendo to scuba diving. These classes are a little extra, but there's a huge variety.

    Most people will say the beach is the go-to for fun around UCSD (and it is!), but there is also much more to discover. Downtown La Jolla is gorgeous year-round and downtown San Diego is only a hour away by bus. Between on-campus fun (which the student body organization ensures there is a lot of), and the nearby towns, any creative student will have a lot of things to do. Having a car is useful to access these things, but the bus system is reliable and wide-spread enough that you can more than sustain yourself on it (plus, the bus is free with a student pass!).

    There is so much to do for fun. There are tons of places to go in the city of San Diego so you'll probably just end up spending so of your time just exploring. The beach is super close and always a good place to hang out and have fun. Also don't forget all of the events like the carnivals, sales, festivals, concerts, free food, and more that happen all the time on campus.

    Definitely take advantage of the activities (concerts, festivals, free food, etc.) available on campus. If you like to explore there are a whole lot of places to go hiking. The beaches are awesome for bonfire parties with your friends or just hanging out.

    There are many organizations on campus that hold their own fun events. There are also large all-campus events that include dancing, music, and free food. There are also many attractions around UCSD to visit such as the beaches, zoos, amusement parks and more

    UCSD does seem kind of on the quiet side, however, I believe if you look for the fun, you will be able to find it.
