Recreation and cultural activities are part of the graduate student experience and in these arenas, San Diego shines. Well known for its beaches and seasonal year-round weather, San Diego is a short distance from the desert, the mountains, and the adventure of Baja California.


Sports fans can take in a game of the San Diego Padres, and admirers of the cultural arts have multiple opportunities to experience theater at the Old Globe, the La Jolla Playhouse, the San Diego Repertory Theater, opera at the San Diego Opera, and classical music at the San Diego Symphony.
