San Diego is famous for its beaches and sunshine and proximity to both Mexico and LA. But there is much more. And if you end up coming to UCSD to study or work, you'll have the chance to explore San Diego county. You hear people say that you can hike in the mountains, hang out in the desert and watch the sun set over the ocean all in one day, without leaving San Diego county. It's true. And it's cooler than it sounds. And when we get our winter rains, the wildflowers are amazing.
1000 engineering students from UCSD's Jacobs School jammed the Price Center on Feb 22to talk to potential employers at DECaF -- the largest student-run engineering career fair on the West coast.
Among the 90 companies recruiting companies was Walt Disney Imagineering. One of the recruiters was Joel Payne, a Jacobs School alum who was hired at this same fair back in 2002. At Disney, Payne is at work on a new roller coaster.
