UCSB is an amazing school with so much

Jul 28 2014Psychology
UCSB is an amazing school with so much to offer! There are so many unique courses and opportunities to learn from diverse professors. The campus community is accepting and very laid-back while still remaining dedicated to academic achievement. I love all of the opportunities for research in just about any topic. UCSB stays under the radar for its academics, allowing the atmosphere to maintain its relaxed environment, even though it is one of the top research universities in the world!

Nov 09 2013Unknown
I am from California, love to party and thought SB was the idea school for me. I heard so many good things about the school and dreamed about going there for years. After visiting, I was really unimpressed. It is located in a very secluded area and I met many students who didn't seem very motivated. The students (of course not all) and area seem very..dirty. It really takes away from fun when partying is all you do. The party scene is overrated as well because I have been to more prestigious schools with better parties, it's just that it's not the only thing they do.

Jan 29 2014Political Science
UCSB combines all of the best elements of college. It's an excellent research university with dedicated faculty, and was ranked #2 research university in the world last year. Despite it being considered a public ivy, the students help each other out and aren't cut-throat competitive like some students at other schools are. It's a friendly and open-minded learning space. While UCSB tops many lists as a "party school", the parties and fun atmosphere are only one aspect of a very multidimensional college. It's not difficult to enjoy yourself and have fun here, but there are many options to spend your free time, if partying isn't your thing. The location is beautiful, and at any point on campus, you're always a just walk away from the beach. IV is it's own little world and is a great beach town, in addition, Santa Barbara and State Street have basically everything. UCSB is a welcoming university, with great quality education, a lot of fun, and facilitates the ideal college experience for various types of students.
