What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of California Santa Barbara can be very overy whelming when you first get there. There is over 30,000 students making you feel like a small fish in a big pond. However once you start making some friends and finding people with a similar mindset, everything becomes easier, you gain friends in classes and extracurriculars giving you a common interest. College is a breeze once you’ve made friends who enjoy the same things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Walking distance from the beach...must I continue. Santa Barbara is known for its lively social scene but don't let that fool you we definitely take academics seriously. The common motto throughout Santa Barbara is "work hard play hard" which is ideal for an eventful and successful college experience. The atmosphere at UCSB shows how the students are pretty laid back and chill. Professors really want the best for the students so they are pretty much always available and willing to help! The on-campus food isn't the best, but THANKFULLY Isla Vista (the surrounding city) has plenty of delicious food options like free birds, buffalo cheese fries and Hana kitchen. Isla Vista is one square mile big filled with all college students so its the perfect environment! All in all Santa Barbara is a great environment for college students to learn and have fun!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCSB will be my future school and I am proud to be a Gaucho. UCSB is a beautiful campus right by the beach and everybody on campus is super friendly. I previously attended the Spring Open Insight House and I had so much fun watching different cultures present what they’re proud of and all of the different activities like rock climbing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed visiting the campus; it is beautiful and you can see the involvement with many of the students. Some of the programs they offered really interested such as the adventure programs me considering I'm such an outdoors person. They offered many activities and sports, one being my favorite, volleyball. Overall the campus is full of spirited and on the go people, I really look forward to visiting it again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCSB is a highly ranked university but it has issues surrounding the campus community and it's surrounding community of Goleta. There has been several events that have made a large impact on the community, specifically those affected by mental health and those who are in financial need. The community has recently been affected by a student suicide and the anniversary of the shooting that occurred in 2014. There has also been a lot of student and community advocacy for the extension of Cal Grant for the summer to provide financial aid for summer classes. There has also been a big movement regarding campus staff because of the unfair wages and contract details for them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it. The campus is beautiful and people are always willing to help you. The environment is calm but people still know have to have fun. It is amazing because everyone here knows what they love and aren't afraid of anyone else's opinions. I originally did not want to attend UCSB, but I am so grateful I did.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Enjoy the conversations we have in class. Professors and TAs encourage students to go to office hours. They make time to schedule another time, if you can't meet during their office hours. Beautiful weather and there is always something you could do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCSB is in a great place, right near the beach, but also in the mountains. It may not get all 4 seasons, but you usually can get partial change of seasons. Its usually a nice comfy, temperature from 60-70. When you have off time, the beach is right there. All the classes are really well taught and well staffed. There are tons of way to stay involved on campus as well.
