syllogisms asked: Hi! Sorry this is sudden but I saw that maralie tagged you in that ucsc post (this is truly the most millennial thing I've ever said, I'm sorry) and I'm trying to pick schools so I was wondering what the atmosphere is like? How's the linguistics program? Is the school actually gorgeous or is that just lens flare? Sorry for all the questions!
oh, don’t be sorry, i love my school and raving about it.
the atmosphere of UCSC is very laid back, and just about everyone here is nice. there is a particular air of activism (especially on the west side of campus, in porter and kresge) so if you’re into that sort of thing, UCSC is great, but even if you’re not, staying away from porter and kresge makes it easy enough to forget about. we are pretty famous for our 4/20s, and if you’re into that kind of culture you’ll feel pretty at home. but again, if you’re not, it’s easily avoidable. probably the coolest thing is that everyone is VERY welcoming and non-judgmental, and it’s very rare that anyone gets mocked or made fun of or anything like that. no one’s gonna give you shit for not being into 4/20, for instance. if you’re a generally insecure or shy person or anything like that at all, UCSC is a good place to be to keep that sort of anxiety at bay.
it is a suuuuper beautiful campus, it’s not at all lens flare. I live in merrill college right in the redwood forests, and I can walk to cowell college and in five minutes I’ve got an amazing view of the monterey bay. if you have even an inkling of an appreciation for natural beauty, you will love UCSC. even if you don’t, you will gain one here. i walk to class through REDWOOD FORESTS and it’s AWESOME. UCSC has got to be one of the most naturally beautiful college campuses in the world.
academically, it’s such an exciting place to be. of course, that varies on what your major is, exactly, but (as you saw in the email, I’m sure), we were recently ranked as second in the nation for research influence, so it’s a place where really cool things are happening pretty generally. the linguistics program is SUPER GREAT AND WONDERFUL and if you want to do linguistics YOU SHOULD GO HERE and I can go more in-depth about it if you want but that’s the important part.
if you’ve got anything else you want to know to get a better feel for the campus, you can shoot me as many asks as you need to.
coachella more like cockroachella
