    If you're looking to come to UCSB, you should definitely have a bike. The majority of transportation is done through biking, and in the long run it's a healthier choice than taking the city bus and waiting for them to pick you up. Also, know that the school you're going to has a lot of competition. Expect to be stressed and frustrated amongst your peers as they are competing to get higher grades. Lastly, stay safe and be friendly. There has been many recent violence that have occurred within the community and the only way to avoid more potential crimes is to stay in groups to be safe. BE friendly, and you will never run out of people to go out with to be safe.

    Don't get distracted by the beach, do make time to study! Take time to look into the different organizations and clubs on campus. Utilize the academic resources that are available, such as going into your professor's office hours and visiting your academic advisor.

    Make new friends once you enter college because after the first year, it becomes very difficult to join a new group of friends as everyone has become situated. If you are unable to handle the party scene and school, please do not try to juggle more than you can handle and set your priorities straight. Also, study very hard to get into the school, but also study very hard to not get kicked out.
