The Development of Downtown San Diego My beautiful hometown of San Diego California has seen great development and revitalization in its downtown district in the past few decades. The city of San Diego now serves as the eighth largest city and the seventeenth largest metropolitan area in the United States of America.

Wyatt Taylor San Diego Fire Hazard 12/8/15 The four phases of San Diego’s history starts the passive margin phase that took place from 400 to 200 million years ago.

San Diego State is a public university and provides top education. It is one of the 23 campuses of the California State University System and has its own branch campus in the Imperial Valley. Their acceptance rates are 34.5% therefore a majority of applicants will not be accepted because they might not have the right GPA or they may not have enough extracurricular activities. They have an outstanding soccer team that has been doing very well this season. It’s also on the beautiful coast of San Diego. They have such a beautiful campus with wonderful people. They are also right next to the beach so you have that wonderful sea smell everyday. San Diego defines its missions as “ to provide a well- balanced, high quality education for undergraduate and graduate students and to contribute to knowledge in the solution of problems are excellent distinction in teaching, research, and service.”
the campus is full of flowers, trees and grass as far as the eye can see. The campus is fairly small the most common slogan used by campus tour guides would say how on average it takes five minutes to be seated in class ready to go from when you shut your door. A very true statement I might add: my farthest class from my dorm was two minutes. So on these Oregon rainy days getting to class fast was very helpful. The campus is like a mini town with how everything was laid out and how nice everyone was, it felt like a big high school but you never left to go home. There is an aquatic center on campus where you can go swim for free you have an indoor football/soccer field also you have a good size fitness room and three basketball courts. One of the best things about the campus was it is in walking distance to anything you could imagine to, a gas station, two miles from the store and any good restaurant you want. Also, being twenty five miles from Portland, weekends were fun walking downtown with the friends you made at the
In Rabbi Diamond’s Interreligious Experience and Engagement class, I have learned how to show respect and appreciation for all beliefs and religions across the world. In just Los Angeles alone, there countless religions practiced. It is important to educate oneself about other religions to understand the world around us, while also strengthening our own faiths. Most of the semester, we have focused on the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths and how to show interfaith relations between the two. On October 10 at 9:30 AM, for my interfaith field experience, I took the time to visit Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple, a Buddhist Temple in Culver City, California at “12371 Braddock Dr., Culver City, California 90230”. I thought it would be interesting to visit a place of worship much different from what we have studied in class thus far.
As a person who has now lived in San Diego for over 22 years and a Latino, it is impossible not to see the medley of direct influences of Hispanic culture in this border town. Because Hispanic people heavily populate the city and it’s proximity to Mexico, representations of this thriving culture can be found in the city’s art, food, religion, architecture, economy, and politics. To get a better understanding of this, we must start at the beginning.

In this essay the beliefs and practices of the San religion will be compared to Christianity to view the similarities and differences between these two religions. According to the Oxford dictionary the word religion refers to the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods. Through this statement it is evident that religion is different for each person.
Religion is a topic of discussion that has been a very controversial issue since the beginning of time and will continue to be so until the end of time. Understanding where religious belief comes from for a given religion and how close it may be to your own can be helpful in understanding your fellow man. Multicultural education and learning a mutual respect for one another can bring peace to situations where anger, violence, and unnecessary hatred came simply because of being uneducated in another’s beliefs. Religion is a communal system for which people beliefs focus on a system of thought, unseen being, person, or object, that is considered to be supernatural, sacred, divine, or of the highest truth. Religions teach morals, values and all local communities become defined by the religious beliefs that one embraces. I aim to understand Catholicism as a religion by interviewing someone of its faith and a priest. In an attempt to expand my own understanding of other religions, and even my own, I have chosen to visit a Roman Catholic Church.
Lastly, since I entered this university, I have developed my religious development level into post-conventional. Because I have lived in a dorm for international students as RA, I can meet people who have different ideas about their religion. For examples, some
