    Do not be intimidated by the campus map and bike routes. Walking from one side of campus to the other takes about 15 min.

    Make sure you get to know your hallmates! They can become your best friends. Be nice to your RA and DAs, they will help you out immensely along the way. Get involved in hall council and other clubs and groups and Greek life! You don't want to regret waiting!

    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.
