Anyone really like their college?
    #1902047 - 09/10/03 01:55 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I need to transfer. I'm so sick of my town..My state...This whole part of the country.

Are any of you college students who really enjoy where you go? I'm totally open...Just looking for ideas...Preferably somewhere they dont have winter...

We've got winter here ... but it's never really that bad at all ... it only dips below 20 a few times out of the year. But you don't want to go here. The campus is really fucking trendy and sold looking. Lots of Greek girls that look like plastic dolls. You might like that though.

I love my college.. you'd pro'lly hate it though. We get snow, and lots of it, from early November until late April. Great open-minded community though, with a killer music scene. A very ecclectic artsy-hippy kinda place.

So no winter?.. I might have just the thing for you.  Let me relate my experiences:

I spent the better part of my life growing up in a small upscale suburb just a couple miles from the Los Angeles city limits in southern california.. out of high school I decided to go to the University of California at Santa Barbara and though the surrounding area was exceptionally beautiful, the college left something to be desired.  I could never quite place my finger on it, but it seemed like a larger replica of where I had grown up - lots of kids who didn't really understand how fortunate they were and ended up just fuckin' around as well as a 'cliquish' attitude amongst the students.  Though if you want a good school with lots of great areas of study, in one of the most beautiful locations on the Californian coastline, including more parties and free booze than you could ever hope to consume :cool: - by all means.  I'm sure had I stayed there, I would have found my place, but at the time I desired change.

So from Santa Babara I trucked it up to Santa Cruz, located at the upper end of the Monterey Bay just south of the San Francisco Bay area on the central California coastline.  Now I had thoguht Santa Barbara was a great place geographically - but Santa Cruz was amazing.  The campus is intertwined with a redwood forrest and paths between classes sometimes take 30 minutes to walk.  Something not fantastic if you have a problem with the rain (as there is a fair but not excessive amount of it in the winter), but I personally love it.  Mushrooms grow well in the area too :grin:

Not to mention the beaches, absofuckinglutely beautiful.  In fact, let me see if I can't dig up some pictures for you.  In the meantime I'll tell you, UC Santa Cruz is not as academically challenging as Santa Barbara, nor does it offer the scope of classes UCSB did.  The campus is also not direcly on the coast, rather suspended on a hill overlooking the entire Monterey Bay - which has its benefits and drawbacks, obviously.  Herb runs rampant at either college, but the people up north are much more tolerant and to the left.  Not saying that I am, but it's a fun place to live because you can essentially do what you want with no big hassle.  When the DEA came in and robbed some medical marijuana clinics the other year, the city of Santa Cruz sponsored an herb giveaway on the steps of city hall to all valid cardholders  :spliff:

Anyways, I've probably rambled on long enough - you get the idea.

UCSC website - UCSB website

All of these pics are from the Santa Cruz area.  I'll start off with some campus shots.

A view from the side of the library towards the paths leading to the steps



Shot of the Music Center.  See all those trees in the backround?.. well this shot is looking towards campus.  The music center overlooks the entire bay at the edge of the hill



An example of the paths you take to/from class



Lots of wildlife, including mountain lions :oogle:  .. this one was shot from my bedroom window on campus.



A bit of the forest in the late spring afternoon



When the sun comes out, so do the people :tongue2:



A partial view of the bay - couldn't find a full shot  :nonono:



Here's a shot of the boardwalk, the bottom one is a view from the end of the pier.



You certainly won't have to worry about undank herbs



The area is also notorious for some nice surf



One side of Bonny Dune beach



Top of the Cliffs @ Bonny Dune


So in short, I'll see you in Santa Cruz!  :lol:

It always cracks me up when people ask me if I know someone who goes to the college I go to... both have had near 20K students, what are the odds? :rolleyes:

Lol.. I really had no idea how large of a school it was, just that a friend of mine from back home goes there.  Besides, the chances of someone in the same year, possibly the same major knowing someone I know are much better than, say, chances of winning the liottery.  :grin:

Ah well.

:lol: - you just gotta stick it out for a couple more days.  On my third day is where I really got it down well enough to actually be having fun :tongue2:  Granted the first day I was quite close to quitting, but had paid for a 3-day instruction course... it paid off nicely, such a fun sport!  Oh, btw, California is riddled with ski areas (as well as deserts, farmingland, and a wonderful coastline) :cool:

a la california:

California is so freaking far away...And I hear its going to slide into the ocean...Any day now...

And looking at admissions...20K a year...Ouch...I'm not sure my student loans would cover that...And considering that my parents are like, dirt poor. But it does look so so so pretty....

20K a year??????? In Holland(everywhere) it's only 1500 a year.

So I suggest you come to Holland. Good quality weed and mushrooms in a shop next door and tolerant people... I can smoke weed on top of our grass covered library...:

Is college the same as university?
