Lying alongside the Pacific Ocean in the La Jolla community of San Diego, The University of California, San Diego is a public university that was founded in 1960. UC San Diego is well known for both its outstanding and challenging academic programs. Being one of the top-ranked public universities in the nation, analyzing the violent crime rate in the city where UC San Diego is located is important. The data that relates to the violent crime rate in this city can reveal how students who are enrolled in the university may be affected during their academic career while attending the UC San Diego.
