Calendar of Events

The Academic Calendar, which is maintained by the Registrar's Office, includes dates that are important to parents, such as holiday breaks, and commencement. Additionally, the calendar lists the first and last day of classes each quarter and final exam dates.Parents' support (e.g., an encouraging phone call or email) during final exams is invaluable to students.

The Division of Student Affairs' Campus Calendar provides the UCSB community with a list of current and future events happening at UCSB. Many of these are public events that are not restricted to students. We encourage parents to attend some of these events, possibly even with their students, to learn more about UCSB and the community.

UCSB After Dark Late Night Social Programming provides funding for student groups to hold late night, and weekend entertainment and recreation options for UCSB students as alternatives to college parties.To learn more about the opportunities available to your student, you can view the After Dark schedule on-line. Encourage your student to participate in UCSB After Dark events.

UCSB's Wellness Program maintains a comprehensive list of events going on at UCSB and in the surrounding communities. The Wellness Calendar features at least five to ten different events each day.We encourage you to consider attending an event with your student when you visit campus.
