Location vs Location UCSB is right on the beach, has sunny weather, is in Santa Barbara which is a cool city, and everything is close together so you can bike and save money on gas. There is a beach, and the nature is pretty cool. There’s also a good bus system for transportation.
Summary Overall, these colleges are pretty legit, I liked both of them and they both sound like a lot of fun. They both give out money to help pay, and they both have great locations and the majors I want.
