We visited and walked the campus (it is huge) and were impressed by the architecture of the buildings. Check out the library and the house on the roof.

Exploring the campus with all of the sculpture is a pleasant way to spend a few hours. The snake walkway is the "highlight" followed by the "Cant i the Hat" sculpture.

The UCSD campus is pictureesque, and the library is names after Dr. Seuss. The campus is sprawling, like most UCs. There are different eateries and things to do on the campus. Be prepared to walk lots if you're taking a tour.
