Founders' Day

Come one, come all! Town Square will be transformed into a 1960s beach boardwalk featuring tasty treats, entertainment and activities from academic departments across campus showcasing our accomplishments, discoveries and innovations over the past five decades. This event is open to the public.

The annual Founders’ Day is a celebration of staff, faculty, undergrads, graduate students, postdocs, administrators, alumni and friends who work together to make UC San Diego a thriving campus and global leader.
