Hello 

We are close to the end of the academic year. For some of our students, this will mark the end of their first year at UC San Diego. For others, it marks the end of their undergraduate career, and the beginning of new things to come.

No matter what journey you all may lead, know that you have built a community here at UCSD. We believe in you and wish you the best on your future endeavors and success. Congratulations on a great year, and we hope to see you all soon!

We encourage you to visit the CASP day-to-day calendar of events to help you keep up-to-date with CASP and other opportunities.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at casp@ucsd.edu, (858) 534-8366 or stop by the CASP office on the 5th Floor of the Student Services Center (suite #555).

CommencementInfoCLASS OF 2017- COMMENCEMENT INFO
At the 90-minute   All Campus  Commencement,  Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla will officially confer degrees by academic division upon graduates of the six undergraduate colleges, Graduate Division and professional schools.


 
Keynote speaker: Rep. John Lewis
At the age of 25, Rep. John Lewis helped spearhead one of the most seminal moments of the civil rights movement, leading with Hosea Williams-another notable civil rights leader-more than 600 peaceful, orderly protestors across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. They intended to march from Selma to Montgomery to demonstrate the need for voting rights in the state. The marchers were attacked by Alabama state troopers in a brutal confrontation that became known as Bloody Sunday. News broadcasts and photographs revealing the senseless cruelty of the segregated South helped hasten the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Lewis is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor.

Tickets:
Graduates will receive their tickets to the All Campus Commencement and undergraduate or graduate ceremonies when they pick up their cap and gown at the  UC San Diego Bookstore. Visit   Grad Central f or more information.

LivArchiveCASP LIVING ARCHIVE
Moriah Hayes, Cohort 2017
In the summer of 2017 we piloted a new project at CASP 101 (our summer transition program), that we call the CASP Living Archive. For the Living Archive, we interviewed and recorded individual student's personal narratives. 

These interviews were held before their first Fall quarter as UCSD students and we will be offering them the opportunity to be interviewed again, before they graduate from UCSD. 
All interviews published as part of this series are with the permission of the students.
