    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The gym is spacious and kept clean. The treadmills and stationary bikes face the windows so you can watch the soccer fields if just being there is boring. The weight room is a little cramped and chaotic.

    Course highlights:

    There isn't really an order or method for where the machines are. They aren't separated by muscle group. The school does well to pair you with a person or people you'll get along with. My roommates and I get along great and I often call them my sisters. I've heard very few complaints about randomly chosen roommates.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    UC Santa Barbara is really fun, but it is also academically challenging. You never feel burnt out though because you are surrounded with so much fun things to do, and it is located in such a beautiful school. Nightlife is the best here.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Would recommend as a relatively easy and very interesting GE which fulfills the philosophy requirement. Professor Graves has been teaching this course for a very long time, but is still very enthusiastic about the subject matter.

    Course highlights:

    This course takes a very different view on history and politics by assessing them in a scientific manner. It asks the question of why certain civilizations became more technological advanced faster than others. It was very fun learning about everything from the first crops to be planted to the certain debate on GMOS.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise that you make sure to make it to all your sections. The subject matter is relatively easy to understand so it may be tempting to slack off, but it will come back to bite you in the butt. The amount of reading can become overwhelming if you fall behind.
