Anonymous asked: Is getting a major change easy? Or is it a whole process where they see if you're good enough to be in that major and all?
Majoring changing is usually easy! The process usually takes up to 2 weeks for it to show up on GOLD for majors that don’t have a GPA prerequisite, but if you’re changing it to a major that as GPA requirement, then the people will definitely see if you passed the pre-req courses with a good grade to allow you in the major!
Anonymous asked: how is the weather at ucsb? would it be bad for a person who loves cold weather to go there?
The weather here is comfortable! It definitely varies during seasons. It usually ranges between 60s-70s, maybe even 80s. And low temperatures from like high 30s to 50s. :P Lately, the weather has been bipolar and it’s cold in the morning but in the afternoon, it’s warm. And I wouldn’t say it’s bad to come here if you like cold weather. Maybe you should come visit and decide if you’d like to go here?
Anonymous asked: Hey! So this is a super lame question, but I got in as a chem major and I was thinking of double majoring or minoring in computer science. I that still possible since one is the college of Letters and Science and the other is the college of engineering? Thanks!
Yes, it’s possible! I’d avise you to talk to the advisors from both Letters and Science and Engineering! :)
Good luck! :)
Anonymous asked: You dont really give out a lot of good advise. You guys need to find a wider range of authors or actually talk to more people who go to UCSB.
Thanks! We will try. :)
Anonymous asked: Do you have any information on biopsychology? It is a hard major?
It’s not hard, but not easy. HAHA, I don’t know too much but I’ve heard mixed reviews.
Can someone else contribute? :)
Anonymous asked: Does UCSB not have a roomsurf thing? Because when I type in the school, it doesnt match with anything so I can't submit my info
I don’t think we have one…but you can submit your info using the ucsb housing preference sheet that you get after you turn in your room preferences!
fromthedegradedtothegreatest asked: I'm currently stuck between choosing SB, UCSD, and USD. For you guys- or anyone else with an opinion, please message me- what are your opinions on those three. Specifically, are the classes as impacted as they seem? Like, is it hard to get the classes you want?
For anyone who wants to contribute! :)
I personally like UCSB…since the campus is nicer, imo! :P
Anonymous asked: Is it hard to make friends at UCSB? I am a bit intimidated by how everyone is saying that ucsb has a TON of attractive people.
It’s not hard! People here are very friendly and will talk to you randomly! Plus joining clubs and finding study buddies in classes are good ways to make friends! :)

Can somebody help out this person? ^_^
Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm a high school senior from Oregon and I've been accepted to UCSB, UCSD, and UC Davis. I think I want to go to SB but I'm not sure. They're all such great schools! So my question for you guys is what's SB like? Have you enjoyed your experience there so far? Are the professors good (well of course they're good but...enjoyable?)? What have you heard about the other two schools? Any insight is much appreciated, thanks!
I know nothing about UC Davis except it’s in the middle of nowhere, kinda. And it’s farr, from where I’m from anyway. Both my brothers go to UCSD and I’ve visited the campus like 2 or 3 times, and I have to say, UCSB is way better. Well, it depends on your major! UCSD’s campus is not as prettyy and the buildings there all look so masculine-y and have that engineering/tech feel. That’s no surprise seeing that UCSD’s known for their biotechnology and engineering majors! My brothers both really like UCSD but..yeah.
UCSB is great in the sense that you can literally bike ANYWHERE on campus, seeing that we’re such a biking school! We have bike paths everywhere, and the majority of ppl bike to class. Also, the people here are all really friendly and willing to help/socialize. The weather is amazing and greek life is super popular here, if you’re into it. All the professors I’ve had are very passionate about their subjects and genuinely want students to do well!
All in all, I really enjoyed UCSB, and that I’m really sad I’m graduating in June. Plus, UCSB is located RIGHT NEXT to the beach, whereas SD has their beach slightly farther from campus like it’s not close walking distance! :)
Hope this helps!!
