A lot of people joke that UCSC is for all the students that didn't get into UC Berkeley. That said, the folks at Berkeley are pretty arrogant, which isn't really the case at UCSC. The students aren't cut-throat by any means, and there aren't many professors who are into brow-beating students. While the school is pretty activism-oriented, you get the feeling that people are apathetic because the college and the town are far removed from the reality of the rest of the world; that is, people feel very safe here and so they don't feel like they have to fight for what they want. The best departments are probably psychology, history, and linguistics.
