  • Sep-25-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Beach, sports teams, a few clubs. Most people commute--well all people commute as there are no dorms, but mostly people don't hang out for long on campus after class is over.

    There is downtown no more than five minutes away so it is very easy to take the public bus and get to the downtown area for a meal. Downtown has many stores, restaurants, theaters, and many shops for entertainment.

    The beach is literally across the street, downtown is super close, and the school always has activities going on.

    There is many activities in school and outside of school. The campus lies about 200 ft from the beach and 5 min from the harbor. One can visit the beach, rent kayaks, go sailing, surfing, or take a 10 min walk to downtown where there is shopping, theaters, and restaurants.

    For fun, you can literally walk down hill from the campus, cross the street, and you are at the beach! There is a wide variety of water sports to take advantage of, including kayaking, paddle boarding, and surfing. Volleyball is also a personal favorite.

    This is the place for FUN. Surfing, SUP, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, running, volleyball, tennis, golf and every outdoor sport you can imagine. The weather is beautiful 365 days a year. The night life on the main drag is famous for pool, darts, movies, small stores, and drinking (if you are 21). There is definitely something for everyone. LA is just a short 1 1/2 hour drive south and SF is a longer drive north but accessible. Have FUN

    If you didn't know by now, and as you may discover soon, Isla Vista is the party capital of the west coast. I don't wanna hear anything about Well USC is pretty crazy, I heard UCLA goes hard. Maybe they do for them, but this is IV (Isla Vista), and here, the parties are world class. On our main street, Del Playa, thousands (that's not an exaggerated number) of kids from 8PM-1AM roam the streets and jump from house party to house party. The music is loud and fun, the dancing is everywhere, beautiful girls and guys as far as the eye can see, this place is a ton of fun if you're into the party scene. And if you're not, don't worry, there's plenty more to be done as well. State Street is the main street here in Santa Barbara, and it's lined with shops ranging from Chipotle and Forever 21, to smaller, local joints that will give you an equally rewarding visit. If you haven't googled Santa Barbara yet, then go and do it RIGHT NOW and look at the ocean. That's how close you are. I can walk from my English class with a surfboard and hit the waves in less than 5 minutes. It's that close. If you like beach life, where else would you want to be?

    It's rare for me to do something fun because I usually put school and work as my priority. But when I do have time to have some fun I love spending time with my friends or family.
