How do SDSU students view UCSD students?

Alright, I've been talking to a boatload of people and reading some opinions online and I'm having a hard time believing any school in San Diego (!!!) could have a bad social life. That being said, UCSD isn't known to be the greatest social atmosphere in the world. I know SDSU (USD too from what I hear) have awesome atmospheres. Here's my question: do UCSD, SDSU, and USD people hang out, party, date each other, etc., or do all three stay in their respective corners? Thanks for the knowledge guys!

    Megadethfan: I've read this info on websites like collegeprow.ler, etc. and I saw some videos about UCSD at The U: Virtual College Tours.

    Any info/opinions greatly appreciated! Thanks

    The location of UCSD (La Jolla as opposed to San Diego proper) and the physical layout of the campus doesn't lend itself to being a "party school." It is an absolutely beautiful academic campus, thank goodness !!!
