I came to UCSB from a small high

Feb 29 2012Anthropology
I came to UCSB from a small high school in Colorado and I felt completely lost. The academics are very demanding and professors won't make sure you pass. Texts are very difficult. I didnt like the school because it was so huge. If youre from California and are used to BIG schools, I think you'll like it.

Office of the University Registrar office system is not on one system for billing, grades, and financial aid and class schedules. Also all forms are in paper format. Feel the system is out of date and the people that handle the paper work don't know information and give you the run around. A real lack of I care altitude from the back office of the Registrar.

Nov 05 2011Biology
If you're looking for an academically-driven student environment, you certainly will not find it at UCSB. Most of the students here party all the time. I am not a party-person, and am finding extremely difficult to find those who attended this university to obtain a great education, not to party. The university does not do much to promote nor support academic success. Study locations (not outside) and help services are inadequate and limited. Budget cuts may have something to do with this, but it doesn't seem like that would be the whole story. There are countless other issues I have with this school, but I will not rant.
