I am looking at UCSB, however, I am from West Virginia and therefore, feel as if I have no idea what people or the campus is like. I was wondering how liberal the students were and if they were very open minded? Are people really pressuring about partying? Are people more down to earth or more superficial? is the town and college artsy?
I also come from a prep school and was wondering how challenging the academics were? Also, If I am not that into sciences or math, should I toss UCSB out the window?
