Campus Visit Notes for University of California-Santa Barbara
When I first got to the campus, I liked it. It looked like a small community inside gates. My tour guides, one in particular, were extremely cheerful and excitable. They had general knowledge about the school; all of which can be found in literature about the school. I learned nothing new on my trip to UCSB. There are a bunch of minor construction sites within campus, with giant trucks driving around inside. It was a bit dangerous. Also, bikers get the right of way, and with the amount of students who ride their bikes, it can take a while before pedestrians can cross a bike path quickly and safely. For the most part, I was pretty dissatisfied with my visit to UCSB.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Their parking was pretty good. Permits were cheap, and parking lots were clearly marked.
