UCSC is a perfect school; for the right person. I enjoyed taking classes without a mass of students only concerned about their grade. There is genuine feeling of community in many of the residential colleges, and to this day I still think "FIRST RAIN!" when the first fall rain comes.

I was blessed with having a faculty advisor that not only cared about my UCSC career, but my entire future. I consider her a personal friend, and it was amazing to take classes from someone I admired so greatly. The faculty in the history department is, with few exceptions, extremely intelligent and entirely focused on teaching students, and teaching them well.

My main advice: leave yourself open. Your opinions will be questioned, and you'll need to get used to that. You may think you want to be someone or something when you are 18, and then experience will lead you in a new direction. There are MANY MANY opportunities at UCSC, if you choose to avail yourself of them.
