University of California, San Diego information
UCSD was established in 1960 and now has more than 18,000 students and a strong reputation, particularly for mathematics and science. It lies on rolling coastal hills in a parklike setting, surrounded by tall, fragrant eucalyptus. Its most distinctive structure is the Geisel Library , an upside-down pyramid named for children’s author Theodor Geisel, aka Dr Seuss of Cat in the Hat fame; there's a collection of his drawings and books.
