STUDENT LIFE AND SPORTS ON CAMPUS

Globetrotting Fellows

Victim of Our Success
Why are some freshmen crowded three to a room in Muir? Simple answer: UCSD is too popular. The University received 400 more statements of intent to register than projected for the 2006-07 year, and John Muir College was impacted the most. MORE

Paper Trail

Council Seeks All-Campus Graduation - October 2, 2006 Student government leaders want to restore campuswide ceremonies to attract better speakers. The A.S. Council, led by its senior senators, has proposed an all-campus baccalaureate to administrators to supplement the individual college commencements. MORE

Beer, but No Bears at A.S. Garden -

October 23, 2006 The first of four Bear Gardens—an offshoot of once-weekly “Thank God It’s Friday” concerts—opened its doors October 20 to a crowd of 550, although a campus policy prohibiting the advertisement of the presence of alcohol at University events hindered attendance levels. MORE

Office Keeps Injured Students Walking - October 30, 2006 The Office for Students with Disabilities has received a significant amount of student criticism in response to its recent suspension of services to temporarily disabled students. Due to a limited number of golf carts and trained student drivers, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Development Brian J. Murray said that it was impossible for OSD to provide rides to and from class for temporarily disabled students—those with such afflictions as a broken foot or leg, pulled tendon or sprain.

SPORTS SHORTS

First Ever Victory Over UCLA
Catch the Wave:
The men’s water polo team is having a banner year that included a thrilling 13-12 win over UCLA on October 6 in front of 1,740 fans. Junior Adnan Jerkovic scored the final goal of the match off a floating lob shot with 28 seconds on the clock. The Bruins failed in their attempt to tie the game, allowing the Tritons to take their first-ever victory against the team.


Happy 30th!: It’s the 30th anniversary of women’s crew at UCSD. Since the sport went to NCAA in 1996, UCSD has moved from Division III to Division II. The squad has been ranked in the top five nationally for the past four years and finished fourth in the Division II NCAA Nationals last year.

Women’s Soccer: Heather Sugg, ’07, was a member of the UCSD women’s soccer team that captured their sixth California Collegiate Athletic Association championship title in a home game on October 29 against Chico State with a score of 4-0. Then in November they shut out two straight Division II opponents to advance to the NCAA quarterfinals, beating Western Washington University 4-0 and Seattle Pacific University 3-0.
