TRITON DAYS 2021

JOIN US IN WELCOMING NEWLY ADMITTED STUDENTS

This year, Virtual Triton Days bring the campus community together to showcase UC San Diego to newly admitted students and their families as a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university. The virtual events provide our admitted students the chance to look deeper and explore the full range of opportunities available at UC San Diego.

Virtual Triton Day will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2021 and Virtual Transfer Triton Day will take place on Saturday, May 15, 2021 – both events happening 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Representatives from the faculty, undergraduate colleges, academic departments and programs, student support services, student organizations and extracurricular/enrichment programs will offer admitted students a glimpse into their future as members of the Triton family. We ask for your participation in these campus-wide events.

To ensure the best experience for admitted students and to provide a coordinated effort across the campus community on April 10 (Virtual Triton Day) and May 15 (Virtual Transfer Triton Day), we ask that you refrain from offering other events/webinars and, please, only utilize the avenues offered by the Office of Admissions for involvement.
