- UCSD Police Department: Call (858) 534-4357(HELP) or ask for help from the nearest security guard or staff member. Learn about and use the Medical Amnesty Program (MAP), and how it can help you prioritize the health and safety of yourself and others.
- Sobering Facility: If your friend was taken to the Sun God Festival Sobering Facility, you can call the hotline at (858) 534-2342 for information. It takes about 20 minutes for a student to be checked-in, so there may not be a record of them yet if you call right after they are picked up. If your friend is checked in, the volunteer will let you know the estimated time to call back (approx. 4 hours) and where to pick them up.
- CARE at SARC: CARE at SARC is on-call 24 hours a day, including weekends. If you need urgent support during non-business hours, weekends, or holidays, please call us at (858) 534-5793.
- ADA Guest Services: Call (858) 864-8242 to reach a liaison who will happily assist with providing a seamless Sun God Festival experience.
Health & Wellness
Sleep: Sleep impacts your physical health and your cognitive functioning. Be sure to get plenty of sleep prior to the event. Be aware that alcohol and caffeine can have a negative impact on your sleep.
Exercise: Regular exercise and physical activity help to improve your mood and cope with stress and anxiety.
Eating: Eating right is an important part of stress management, helps you maintain energy throughout the day, improves cognitive performance, and keeps your mood steady.
Time Management: Prepare in advance for the amount of time you'll need to study for midterm exams. When you know you have a large event coming up that will take a lot of time (e.g., attending a wedding, a birthday party, SUN GOD!), it's important to plan effectively. Start weeks in advance and schedule study time around this large event. This way you can actually enjoy the event while you are there! It will also reduce the likelihood of you having to cram and pull an "all-nighter".
Social support: Relationships are one of the most important factors of well-being. Developing, deepening, and maintaining close, supportive relationships help us to flourish. While at UCSD, it's important to not just focus on academics, but to find a sense of belonging and community; to be part of a group in which you feel you are a valued member. Close relationships help to reduce loneliness and provide support during stressful times.
Find your passion: Find at least one interest or hobby that you can pursue and look forward to once or twice a week. “Engagement” in activities in which you get completely absorbed and feel perfectly challenged, neither bored nor overwhelmed, can be extremely rewarding and help us to flourish.
