  • - San Diego

On 1 December 1995 The University of California at San Diego, (UCSD) renamed their University Library Building, "The Geisel Library," in honor of Audrey and Theodor Seuss Geisel, (Dr. Seuss,) for their generous contributions to the library and their life long efforts to improve literacy. Theodor Geisel lived his last years in San Diego, and through dontations, of his wife, Audrey, many of his collections are on display at the UCSD Geisel Library, which is open to the public. The Geisel Library is located nearly in the center of this huge campus and not too far from the bookstore, which sells much more than books. Also next to the bookstore is a nice little food court where students gather between classes and is a good place to, "meet the locals," if that is what a visitor is interested in.

There are three major university campuses in San Diego, University of San Diego-(USD,) San Diego State University--(SDSU) and University of California at San Diego--(UCSD) and many more not so major. The point being, these campuses are lovely to tour, they have great bookstores and each offer seasonal sports that can be watched while visiting. Also, there are plenty of opportunities to meet young people--and some not so young--without feeling awkward or out of place.
