Tell us your best memory from UC San Diego.

Trekking over to the cafeteria in Camp Matthews (military barrackes that UCSD aquired). This did not last too long though.

Give us an unforgettable experience from your favorite campus tradition.

The dropping of the watermelon from the top floor of a dorm.

Triton statue or Sun God statue?

Triton. I think the Sun God is relatively new. Also, many people we knew were involved in oceanography and marine biology so we liked the nautical symbol.
