University of California – Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA
There is a huge tie between UCSB’s students and the Isla Vista community. For one thing they both love to party. In this community, the Halloween celebration goes on for a week! This tradition is one of many interesting social activities at this school. The students also do “Undie Runs” to calm down during Finals. If you don’t want to party ever, you can still have a great social life; there are thousands of college students so there’s bound to be a social group everyone can fit into. It’s still possible to have a great social experience without partying every weekend. The fact of it all is that most of the partying goes on in Isla Vista, so if you plan on getting work done you should just avoid that area. On the other hand, it’s the place to be when you’re looking to have party. The Gauchos have very solid soccer and basketball teams, with several other sports earning honors in their conference.
