What Students Are Saying

4.07 Average Rating
UCSB is the perfect school for students who are serious about their academics but also want to have fun meeting new people, studying on the beach, and taking advantage of what So-Cal has to offer. With its beautiful location and close knit community, UCSB will become your home away from home in no time. We Gauchos "Gaucho Back" no matter what.

UCSB is an amazing university located in beautiful Santa Barbara, California and is surrounded. UCSB will provide any student with great academics, a healthy social life, ways to get involved and most importantly a degree that you can be proud of. I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything.
