The UCSD community celebrated the 50th anniversary of the institution’s founding on Thursday with music, dance, videos and a list of speakers. The faculty and students participated through attending and celebrating the growth and accomplishments of the university over the years. Within the last 50 years, UCSD has gained a prominent reputation and has become a “distinctive, world-class university”. However, along with the celebrations, came a protest from over 75 students who spoke out against the recent 8% fee increase. The students at UCSD expressed their struggles in being able to continue their education in such a distinctive university, similar to the experiences of students all across the UC and Cal State system, through carrying protests throughout the event and hoping to have their voices heard on a day celebrating the education and the growth of their university.
