Introduction: Universities are as keen as any other big organization on high-sounding slogans and mottoes. The University of California’s trite motto is “Let there be light.”
Each of UCSD’s six colleges has its own, in addition to the newer, longer, UCSD-wide one, which was the product of many hours of focus-group meetings. It says we are focused, centered, and oriented, and it relates to service, research and students.
Questions 1-4 ask you to assemble the slogan. Questions 2-10 want you to link the putatively distinctive college slogans to the colleges they are supposed to describe.
