Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2009

College Life Rating

The social atmosphere is great because the school is large enough to continue to meet different people throughout your time there. Although there are a limited number of sports teams and Greek organizations with little to no social influence, there are a plethora of other extra curricular activities to partake in like drama club, different student unions, dance teams, etc. There are different themed colleges like Oakes, Stevenson, and Kresge, where students live on campus. The on campus dining ranges from being meh to excellent. The campus is very LGBT friendly. Plus it is located pretty close to downtown Santa Cruz, the boardwalk, and the beach.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2011

College Life Rating

This college is more about life outside of the classroom, so the student and campus life are tremendously great. Also, although UCSC is a large school, it has a great sense of community, and walking around campus you are bound to run into friends on any given day.
