Although the campus is absolutely breathtaking, if you intend to get a degree from the school of engineering, pick another school. This department is full of arrogant, impatient instructors who are more concerned with when they will get home for the day than how their students are doing. The administration also often makes things such as enrolling in classes, paying bills, and even graduating on time much more complicated than they need to be, and the school's website is an absolute joke to boot. Never have I had more trouble getting a site to function correctly. Even though I have made some amazing friends here, I cannot remember a time when I was happy with my decision to attend UCSC.
responseSchool of Engineering @ucsc compared to other uc is the best. Outsanding faculty, they return your phone calls and emails. @uc berkely they won't return your emails if you sent 50 every day for one yr, no access to faculty, no one gives a shit. If you intend to study engineering at any school , you life is going to be hard, major courses are difficult, if you can't do the work independently, you need to reconsider engineering even in the amazon. UCSC has numerous resources and easy access for student, it is one of Americas safest campuses, one or two car thefts but no murders or rapes, campus police patrol 24/7
responseI agree with the student who responded this review. Maybe I shouldn't be comparing, but if you think you're getting a bad experience at UCSC in engineering, you should see what you'll get at the Cal Polys. Like the student above me said, there's no violent crime at UCSC. At the Cal Polys, the violent crime is horrible. Do the research and see for yourself.

UCSC PR people up in here?
