Here at UC Santa Barbara, we believe in possibilities. We believe that blending a beautiful environment together with bright minds paves the way for radical inspiration. It’s clear in the way our students and faculty live their lives, and in the way our university makes a tremendous impact.
With six Nobel Laureates and half of our undergraduate class engaged in research, Gauchos have joined together to create a world-class institution. Recent rankings have placed us as the #8 public national university (2016 U.S. News and World Report Best College Rankings) and the greenest public university in the nation (2015 Princeton Review Top 50 Green Colleges). That kind of notoriety requires sustained support to keep expanding possibilities.
To celebrate our achievements and to honor the people who bring this campus to life, UCSB is launching its first-ever Give Day. Give Day is an online experience designed to celebrate the Gaucho spirit and to support UCSB like never before. We’ll witness thousands of Gauchos rallying together: one community stretched across the globe and connected in the digital space.
Join us on 4/8/16 for this transformative event and see how your contribution can add up to something really big.
