Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
I've really enjoyed my time at UCSC, and the psychology program is excellent. Lot's of opportunities for undergrads, and they definitely push students towards higher education, which I think is great. All my professors in psychology have been excellent, however, some are lacking in other departments (ie - sociology), but overall I can't complain.

As a transfer student, social opportunities were a bit limited and difficult to get involved in, so I felt lucky to have known several people prior to transfering. Otherwise, most people I know have a fairly easy time meeting people and getting involved. They only downfall is that the campus is really spread out, so it can be a bit difficult to branch out beyond your designated college residence.

Down town is alright, not too happening (a few bars) but thats ok, the beaches and surrounding landscape are phenomenal.

Overall, UCSC is great and I definitely don't regret my decision to come here. Great education.
