This is not your typical Alumni Weekend.
From a surfing invitational and science stars to clownfish and culinary delights, Alumni Weekend 2012 is as diverse as UC San Diego alumni themselves. Join us for four days of exclusive events for alumni, friends and family on the picturesque La Jolla campus.
Alumni Weekend, May 31st – June 3rd, is an annual four-day celebration where UC San Diego welcomes back alumni, friends and family for an unforgettable weekend experience. From signature events like Family Night at Birch Aquarium and the Summer Beach Party and Surfing Invitational, to new experiences like Taste of UCSD and Career Boost Camp, it sure to be a jam-packed weekend filled with new experiences, old friends, eye-opening discoveries and unforgettable fun.
Last year, more than 2,000 alumni returned to campus to reconnect and celebrate the University’s 50th anniversary. This year, start your journey on Thursday night with a Taste of UCSD: Intellectual Inspiration and Gourmet Grub at Calit2. Hear five internationally recognized faculty members discuss their groundbreaking research, followed by delicious delectables from alumni-owned businesses.
Then on Friday night, head down the hill to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps for Family Night. From face painting and scavenger hunts to live music and an underwater kelp show, this is a favorite event among “future Tritons” of all ages.
On Saturday, join us at Blacks Beach for the annual Summer Beach Party and Surfing Invitational to watch 24 teams compete for the coveted Paul Saltman Trophy and enjoy surf lessons, family games, music and a picnic lunch.
If sand in your shoes isn’t your thing, check out the inaugural Career Boost Camp, brought to you in partnership with UC San Diego Extension. Learn how to take your college degree and parlay it into a new or even better job. In addition, several college, activity and affinity reunions will be hosted on campus throughout the day.
On Saturday evening, the annual Alumni Celebration will recognize five distinguished members of our Triton family who are making waves in the world of exploration, discovery, science and social ventures. Event proceeds will benefit student scholarships.
And finally, Alumni Weekend concludes on Sunday morning with a family-friendly brunch with activities and music near the Stuart Collection’s Bear. This event will also recognize the more than 500 alumni volunteers who have given their time and talent in support of UCSD.
With a wide variety of events, Alumni Weekend is sure to be a fun, inspiring and memorable experience for all Tritons.
