    For fun go to the beach:surf, paddleboard, kayak, and go whale-watching. The downtown SB life is amazing. Parties all the time.

    Because UCSB is located on a beach, the beach is obviously one of the biggest attractions it offers. UCSB not only has many viewpoints to watch the oceans and the sunset, but also has it's very own marine aquarium that students can check out for free! Furthermore, UCSB's campus is next to the Isla Vista community in which many restaurants and shops are located for the students' leisure.

    If you are an outdoors person hiking or going for a run in Santa Barbara is amazing. Having the ocean right by UCSB is also a plus for going for a job or simply sitting on the sand to read a book.

    THE BEACH (obviously). There's also the really cute downtown Santa Barbara which is your typically tourist-y beach town. Also about half an hour north is a small Danish town called Solvang and an ostrich farm!

    Isla Vista is right next to campus so all the big parties are just a few blocks away from the dorms. If you are not into the party scene, there are various clubs that allow you to meet people very quickly and greek life on campus is 1/4 of the student population and I encourage you to join something while you are here.

    Party in IV but if you're not a big party-goer, there are always alternative events put on by the RAs in each dorm that you can go to which are pretty fun with free food. Explore Santa Barbara since UCSB really isn't in Santa Barbara but in a town called Goleta. There are tons to do downtown like shopping, museums, music venues, and the movies. And there is always the beach!
