We go here every time we have visitors. The campus is amazing. The Geisel library is a must, go inside to the top. The engineering building has a house hanging off the tall building, quite a feat of engineering.Children love the enormous stone teddy bear.

Nestled in the hills north of San Diego, this school displayed some ultra modern buildings and facilities. Ate in the student dining hall, which was great. They even have earthquake containers spread about the grounds.
