A Day in the Life of UC Santa Barbara

Palm-framed vistas of the blue Pacific and the golden Santa Ynez Mountains. The scent of eucalyptus mixed with the saltwater breeze. Breathtaking natural beauty combined with enormous intellectual vitality. This is the University of California, Santa Barbara, and there is no other campus quite like it.

Here on the edge of the Pacific, in a setting removed from urban pressures and distractions but vibrant with cultural and academic activity, many of the country’s most promising students join a community of scholars whose accomplishments are internationally recognized and whose skills as teachers are evident each day in classrooms and laboratories.

In the humanities and the arts as well as in engineering and the sciences, UC Santa Barbara introduces students to novel ways of thinking, learning, and conducting research.

Is this School For Me?

After going over the many things that Santa Barbara has to offer me I am rethinking my decision in wanting to attend this school. All my years of education I have been used to having a small population in the school I attended. I'm not sure how fond I am of joining a school with a population of 23,051 students. I have always been used coming home after school and seeing my family. I think if I go too far I will begin to become home sick. The closer I am to home the easier it would be for me. Although the activities seem to interest me. Especially since they have a cheer program.
