Join a Co-op!

UCSD is the home of a unique community of cooperatives and collectives. Few schools in the USA have anything like it. If you are new to the UCSD campus or to the San Diego/Tijuana region then you are invited to explore and join any (or many) of these organizations.

Please browse a few introductory and background links and let us know what you think.
