Students talk about UC Santa Barbara
"I decided to come to UC Santa Barbara because of the strength of its physics program and the opportunities it would bring. But, throughout my time here, I've discovered a community of students and faculty who have been so kind and welcoming, and their support has allowed me to push my boundaries — both in my academics and personal growth — in ways I never thought were possible."
"I joined my lab during my BS/MS program and enjoyed working on my research projects in machine learning. In addition, I had a great support system from my advisor. I continue to enjoy the UC Santa Barbara environment and the collaboration between students and groups. The combination of all of these factors is what led me to continue to pursue my education at UCSB."
