Welcome to the family GAUCHOS!
You made the right decision; you are going to LOVEEE UCSB! I’m Samantha Ixquiack a second year Sociology & Global Studies double major. I’m originally from Colton, CA, a little valley in the San Bernardino county (SOCAL all day). I love UCSB so much that I’m currently spending my summer at UCSB doing an internship with RHA (RHA= the student body of the Residence Halls) & loving every minute of it! If you ever have ANY questions about me, UCSB, IV, classes, or anything ASK ME! I just finished my first year and I KNOW how it feels but I’m here to guide you in the right direction. This blog is meant to help you! I’m here to help make your transition into college easier in any way I can. Pleassssee askkkk meee!
As a UCSB student, I will always be honest about what college life is like and my experiences at UCSB both good & bad. Not too long ago I felt the same things you are feeling now. I honestly LOVE UCSB and I cannot see myself anywhere else! I believe you will grow to feel the same. My first year was amazing & I know that your first year will be just as amazing or better! It’s OK to be scared and nervous I definitely was. But I was welcomed by a caring staff, a beautiful community, & friendly people that became my UCSB family.
I will post two blogs every week during the summer! Feel free to ask questions or make comments and I will do my best to answer them. Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything (appropriate)! I look forward to hearing from
you, enjoy the rest of your summer & get ready for UCSB my fellow GAUCHOS!
