On Saturday, Oct. 4, several hundred new freshmen and transfer students took part in the campus’s seventh annual “Meet the Beach” event. The giant beach party/beach cleanup took place at the tail end of Welcome Week and allowed students to participate in various activities. The event, hosted by UC San Diego’s recreation department, featured surf lessons, “beach” zumba, kayaking, pier tours, tide pool tours, yoga, soccer, volleyball and more. In addition, Volunteer50, a campus-wide initiative that aims to inspire and celebrate community service at UC San Diego, recruited many volunteers to participate in a beach cleanup as part of the day of festivities.
