Up Front May 2007: Volume 4, Number 2

I'm back on the UC San Diego campus. I'm not going to say 20 years just flew by, but as I walk around, the memories immediately come back. The smell of Peterson lecture hall during a humanities final; the painted anchor in front of the mud huts; the sixth floor cone of silence atop the Library; a spending spree in the sundry store. Each of us has our own memories from our time at UCSD, and memories are part of the connection to a pivotal time in our lives.

A c c o l a d e s

Excuse this brief interruption while we take a moment to congratulate ourselves. The UCSD Alumni Association was recognized in three different categories by the Council for the Advance­ment and Support of Education (CASE) at the CASE District VII conference in San Francisco, in November.

The Association won three Awards of Excellence for its creative use of technology, new programs and general interest magazine. It received a gold medal award for its innovative “AlumnIdea” crowdsourcing microsite that allows alumni to give interactive feedback; a gold medal award for the “Discovery Ambassador Initiative,” a program that reconnects alumni with the University; and a silver medal award for the magazine, which we hope you are happily perusing.


Bubble House
Thanks for sharing Michael Litt's memories of the famed "Bubble House" (September 2011 issue). I, too, like many others, have fond memories of study sessions, lazy afternoons and post-TG blowouts. Although I didn't live there, friends who did somewhat resembled what could, in retrospect, be seen as a harbinger to MTV's Real World. The house had a relatively eclectic group of "hip" UCSD students who were both serious with their academics but knew how to have a good time. It's good to know the spirit lives on in Del Mar.
