Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - UCSD is wrapping up its 50th anniversary celebration this weekend, by honoring its alumni.

There are more than 145,000 UCSD alumni worldwide.  Fifty of them were honored in a celebration Saturday night.

In 1961, the founders of the University had one criteria for the campus; it must be distinctive.  Since then, UCSD has been recognized as one of the top schools in the nation.

The 50th anniversary kicked off with a "Founder's Day" celebration last November.
