Students do most of their partying off campus, especially after their freshman year. The social scene is very laid-back, and people usually stick with their friends. Once students turn 21, the social scene moves from house parties to the bars in Pacific Beach. The bars are very popular, especially on the weekends, and many students go out with big groups of friends to have a fun night.
Hookups or Relationships?
The question of hookups or relationships depends entirely on the individual. While there are a large number of students in relationships, many find themselves too busy with studying, going to class, and working to have a relationship. For them, a hookup at a bar or party one night is all they're looking for. Others want a stable relationship; it all depends on the person.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
If you are looking to meet lots of people, Tijuana is your best bet. As soon as UCSD students cross the border and find themselves in Mexico, they seem to lose all of their inhibitions. Everyone goes to Mexico on the pretense of getting drunk, dancing, meeting new people, and having a fun night.
UCSD is very casual. Students live in sweatshirts, jeans, and flip-flops.
