    ucsb is a beautiful research-oriented university located right next to the beach. although it has a "party reputation," this is merely a stereotype that possesses little basis (although people are a lot more well-balanced here... cough cough berkeley). overall, i chose to come here (committed two weeks ago) because i got into the honors program (tons and tons of benefits), it had my major and was pretty good at psychology and biology (my major is biopsychology), and because i felt i connected with the people on campus (tons of happy and down-to-earth people). read full review

    I am currently a prospective student expecting to attend UCSB. My main tip would be to visit the campus before making a decision!!! While everyone says that it's the most beautiful college campus in the world and it's perfect for the view and location, etc., etc., etc., I think it's important for any anticipating student to visit it for themselves and decide if it's the right fit. When I first visited the campus, I had a slight letdown because I was expecting the capus to be some sort of Greek-God-Utopia. After further inspection, I decided it was an incredibly beautiful campus with plenty of things to do and places to explore. Find out for yourself :) read full review
