Muir Students


Muir depends on the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends to support the activities and programs that have made the college a special place for generations of University of California San Diego students.

We rely on your gifts to support the events and programs that enrich student life such as our annual music festival Muirstock, the Pumpkin Drop and Halloween Carnival, the Muir Musical, and a host of other social and cultural opportunities. Your gifts also underwrite the activities of student organizations such as the Muir Environmental Corps, Muir Eventual Doctors, Muir College Council, Muir Residents Council, Tribe of Muir Transfers, Muir Theatre Troop, and many others, and help make possible the personalized academic advising in which Muir takes pride and on which our students depend.

Your generosity has also enabled the complete renovation of the College Center which includes M.O.M. (Middle of Muir) a student lounge with computer terminals and wide screen TV; P.O.P. (Purveyor of Products), our snack and sundry shop; and the Muir Woods Coffee Shop. More students than ever before are taking advantage of this exciting new space for studying, relaxing, meeting friends, and enjoying informal music, theatre, and comedy performances in the evenings.  Your gifts have also made it possible for us to give Half Dome Lounge, our principal student meeting room, its own needed face-lift that includes a demonstration kitchen in which students can share their family food traditions and learn about healthy eating.

Please help us keep Muir student life and traditions alive by giving to the Muir Provost’s Fund. Every gift counts!

Thanks from all of us at Muir.
