UCSD Circle K


First chartered in 1977, Circle K International at UC San Diego is the largest community service organization on campus. UCSD CKI distinguishes itself from other campus organizations for its dedications to service, leadership, and fellowship. We participate in service projects including: La Jolla Kiwanis Club, Boys & Girls Club, Ladle Soup Kitchen, San Diego Food Bank, American Red Cross, Reality Changers, and more. Our doors are always open to new members and we encourage you to come and get involved today!
