Student Activities & Campus Life


Co-curricular activities play an important role in the quality of life at UC Santa Barbara. Social and cultural activities outside of class give students opportunities to meet new people, gain leadership skills, provide service to their community, and receive a well-rounded education.

At UCSB, there is certainly no shortage of activities for students to choose from. Starting with the first week of classes, Discovery Days provides students with an introduction to opportunities on campus and in their community. There are activities for students with all types of different interests and backgrounds. If a student can’t find what they are looking for, they can even start a club or organization around their specific interests.
