-A breathtakingly beautiful campus, home of the Banana Slugs.

-School some of the best programs in the country like astronomy and psychology. Great tennis and swim teams without a hyper inflated sports budget. Offers courses called History of The Beatles, and History of Bob Dylan.

-Not comprised entirely of hipsters, hippies, and stoners. Whatever stereotype you are identified as/identify with is most likely represented also.

Wow. Needless to say, I think it's the only campus in North America where "History of Conciousness" is an accepted major. Also, if you go to UCSC, and haven't done First Rain at least once, you're just faking the funk. Also, the best college book ever, "Don't Tell the Parents" was written by the proctor of my old dorm, and is highly suggested reading to all interested in the campus.

A beautiful campus where people are generally great, you get around on public transportation or biking, you learn to think for yourself b/c some of the professors are completely off their rocker, and you work hard not to get pegged as "bleeding-heart liberal," "wigger," "AzN," "token angry black person," "fascist conservative," "that immigrant kid that can't speak English," or "rich emo kid."

This amazing university is sadly and extremely underrated.

UCSC definitely has higher prestige than UC Merced and UC Riverside, and UCSC is quickly becoming more prestigious and selective. UCSC is ranked equally if not better than UCSB.
UCSC was ranked in the top 100 colleges/universities in the nation. We boast many things that cannot be compared to, including the beach as well as a redwood forest. It is surrounded by the best scenery compared to all other UC campuses (hands down). Among other things, we boast the #2 ASTROPHYSICS program in the nation.

Do your research before you make your judgments based on ignorant trolls you have not even set foot on the campus. We are also the REAL surf city (Huntington Beach is stereotypical and quite frankly lacks the diversity and the original surf attitude. They have the stereotypical spoiled rich kids that have everything handed to them and they have closed minds as to what diversity really is).
A few UCSC achievements:

- The computer engineering Ph.D. program was rated 1ST nationally for publication impact by the National Research Council in 2010.
- UCSC was rated 3RD IN THE WORLD for research influence in 2011 by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
- In 2010, the UCSC Economics Department was ranked 7TH IN THE WORLD--and 6TH among all academic departments--for research in international finance, according to Research Papers in Economics (RePEc).

people don't just walk around naked here. Deer walk around naked too.
this is also a good place to get brainwashed from the FAR left, walk around in the woods, learn to like the way pot smells, learn to take public transportation,evaluate everything, and most improtantly learn how to live compleatly seperated from anything you might need or want, like a best buy or an In and Out.
ted is doing really great at UCSC his perfomance in "how to be part of the world:injustice and america" was evaluated as "moderatly successful".
