Many people consider UC Santa Barbara to be a school populated mainly by sorority girls and surfer guys. It's true that there are many sororities and fraternities as well as many people who enjoy the beach (It's a major draw for our school!). But there are also so many other "kinds" of people and organizations one can become involved in - the Environmental Affairs board, ethnic-based clubs, etc. You definitely don't have to be a Greek to have a great time at UC Santa Barbara nor do you have to party all the time - though a great party is usually right around the corner.
The stereotype of UCSB students is the very unoriginal "partiers." Every college has parties, and every college students will go to a party here and there. The thing about UCSB is that although students may party a lot, everyone is very on top of their schoolwork and cares a lot about school. In my eyes it's pretty cool that a school with such a party reputation can hold such high ranking for academics because that just proves that we know how to be social AND do well in school :)

Everyone thinks that UCSB is a school whose students only care about partying. In reality, you may see tons of people partying but the people you don't see are the ones who are studying.

We care about our grades and getting out to party every now and then makes us more well rounded, able to carry on conversations and be more outgoing.
