We have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/UCSBadmissions) and Twitter account (https://twitter.com/ucsbadmissions) where students can follow and ask questions. We also have a website called Zinch (http://www.zinch.com/uc-santa-barbara/), similar to Facebook where they can have questions answered as well.
Another service we offer is College Week Live (http://www.collegeweeklive.com/index.html), where counselors and directors in the UCSB admissions office are online to answer questions from students in a chatroom type setting.
All of these services are designed to keep students, parents, and counselors in the loop as well as answer any questions about the admissions process, UC Santa Barbara, or the UC System as a whole.
I would also like to offer up a link to our financial aid website (http://www.finaid.ucsb.edu/). For many students, attending a UC is not considered because of the cost.
We offer many different options for financial aid at UCSB including grants, scholarships, loans, and work study. Please refer your students to this website for any concerns about the cost of a UC.
Lastly, for any students who were not able to attend my visit and would like to receive more information about UC Santa Barbara, here is a link to sign up for our student mailing list:
As always I am available to students by phone or email and I am more than happy to answer any questions that may come up.
