This annual tradition offers students and their families an opportunity to meet with local alumni — just as they’re about to embark on their own UC San Diego journey. From picnics to virtual events, alumni share tales of sand, surf and study, while students will make new connections.

Incoming Students & Families

Meet local UC San Diego alumni who will share advice, tips and tricks about life on campus, plus make new Triton friends living in your area, including fellow students and their families.

Understanding that COVID-19 variants are still a significant concern in our community, and out of an abundance of caution, we strongly encourage the use of masks at our events, and recommend guests be fully vaccinated and take an antigen test just prior to arrival. We will provide masks and antigen tests onsite to anyone who would like them. Thank you for helping us slow the spread of COVID in our community.
