Earl Warren College is one of the six undergraduate colleges at the University of California at San Diego and is named after the three term California Governor and former Chief Justice of the United States Earl Warren. Warren College emphasizes the importance of living a balanced life. Founded in 1974, Warren College seeks to create academically balanced scholars.
Warren College is home to a large number of engineering students because its general education requirements are more lenient for students pursuing an undergraduate degree in engineering. Coincidentally, Warren also has the largest student population, with well over 4,000 undergraduate students, comprising over one fifth of the college population. In 2006, the college has added a new building dedicated to the study of Information Technology, called Calit2.
