Immaculata purple flowers

Calling all Toreros! We want to feature you in "Torero Photo of the Week." Send us original photos that convey your Torero experience wherever you are,  or simply capture beauty, and add a short caption about your inspiration for the photo. If selected, we will mention your name in the byline.*

Send your photo to dcim@sandiego.edu


As part of an initiative aimed at reducing the number of campus-wide emails, the Department of University Marketing and Communications has developed Torero Weekly, which aggregates announcements and events aimed at the entire campus community (faculty, students and administration/staff) into a communication disseminated campus wide each Monday during the academic year.

To learn more about Torero Weekly or to submit an event, please review the Torero Weekly web page on the University Marketing and Communications website.

*By submitting a "Torero Photo of the Week," you agree to our terms.
