UC San Diego is widely regarded by students as “one of the top science universities in the United States.” As a result, the school attracts bright students who benefit from “access to cutting edge technology and theories” and “great opportunities for undergraduates to do research.” Professors “are incredibly knowledgeable about their material, and many of them are actively doing research in their field.” Research opportunities are widely available to undergraduate science majors. However, sciences are not the only attraction here. The university is home to six separate colleges, a system that students say is “a great way to not feel like a small fish in a huge ocean.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
