Student Life

Of course, recreation and cultural activities are part of the graduate student experience as well, and in these arenas, San Diego shines. Well known for its beaches and seasonal year-round weather, San Diego is a short distance from the desert, the mountains, and the adventure of Baja California. Sports fans can take in a game of the San Diego Padres or the Chargers, and admirers of the cultural arts have multiple opportunities to experience theater at the Old Globe, the La Jolla Playhouse, the San Diego Repertory Theater, opera at the San Diego Opera, and classical music at the San Diego Symphony. 

Finally, while we expect the experience of students at TSRI's Graduate Program to be extremely rich and rewarding, we are fully aware of the stresses and pressure placed on today's graduate students. With that in mind, the administration of the program has put in place a number of ways for students to seek help and guidance with issues of coping with a new environment, dealing with difficult situations, and navigating life's challenges in a competitive scientific arena.
