Revelle College is UC San Diego's first college, named in honor of Roger Revelle, the chief architect of the University in its early years and a recipient of the President's Medal for Science.
In the early 1960s, when Dr. Revelle and other founding members of the UC San Diego faculty began to think about an undergraduate component to the new university, they were committed to the principle of a broad liberal arts education that would provide a firm grounding in the major disciplines of the sciences, humanities, arts, and social sciences.
Revelle College has a dedicated cadre of senior faculty loyal to the college's classical education. The college's core course, the humanities sequence, has the highest percentage of senior faculty instructors of all the university's core courses.
The Revelle College Academic Advising Office is responsible for advising all new and continuing students from orientation to graduation. Academic Advisors are available to help your students with a variety of questions and concerns from helping navigate the Revelle curriculum to decision-making strategies to assisting students who are experiencing academic difficulty.
Revelle College Residence Life is committed to providing a safe living and learning experience for a diverse population of students. Professional and paraprofessional Residence Life staff members encourage community and personal development, academic success, leadership development and civic engagement, and a respect for individual identities.
Encourage your student to get involved in the numerous activities that are provided both at Revelle and UC San Diego like Watermelon Drop, Roger Revelle's Birthday, UnOlympics, Anchor Painting, and Revelle's Semi-Formal Dance.
