Welcome to the Muir Family

John Muir College, the second undergraduate college at UCSD, is named after John Muir, the environmentalist, writer, founder of the Sierra Club. While we do not have an academic requirement that students study the environment, we do include environmental issues in the college, Our motto, "celebrating the independent spirit" is inspired by Muir's life, travels, and political activism to change the fabric of the nation.
