April 09, 2015

There’s more to America’s top-ranked party school than just the extravagant soirées. It took just one visit for Mohan to fall in with UC Santa Barbara and here’s 9 reasons why:

1. Everyone’s on wheels

 

You better look both ways when walking around—bikes and skateboards have right of way!

2. They’re green 

 

Recycling is like a religion over there. 

3. They have 6 Nobel Laureates on staff

 

A Nobel Prize is the most coveted honor in most fields. UCSB has winners in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Economics, Chemistry and Physics.
