What is the best part about starting a new quarter after the summer?

GEORGE BUAKU
Men's Basketball
Senior • Guard
Lake Forest, CA • El Toro HS
Cognitive Science • Muir College

I think it is more about getting back into the routine of balancing school, sports, and sleep. The best thing about getting back to school is talking to my friends and getting to go to all the athletic events to support them. To me, it is always exciting to get back to UCSD!

AMANDA COLLA
Women's Volleyball
Senior • Outside Hitter
Carlsbad, CA • San Dieguito Academy
Biology • Roosevelt College

Seeing all my friends again after summer.

GARRETT LEPINE
Men's Cross Country
Senior
Simi Valley, CA • Simi Valley HS
Environmental Chemistry • Muir College

My favorite thing about getting back to school after summer break is being able to get back to work being a student-athlete rather than just an athlete.

JORDYN McNUTT
Women's Soccer
Senior • Midfielder
San Diego, CA • University City HS
Human Development • Roosevelt College

Getting to start the soccer season and getting to see all my teammates. Starting new classes and getting back into the groove of things.

ARMAN MOMDZHYAN
Men's Water Polo
Senior • Utility
Glendale, CA • Anderson W. Clark Magnet HS
Human Development • Muir College

l would have to say it's seeing my friends that I didn't see all summer. It's very nice to catch up with old faces and meet new Tritons!

JEFF POWERS
Men's Soccer
Junior • Defender
San Jose, CA • Branham HS
Communication • Sixth College

Being back with my team and being able to play soccer again. Hit the season in full stride when everyone’s getting back to school.
