A beautiful history and a progressive future of tourism is what define Santa Cruz. There is so much more to this well-organized city than tourism. Surrounded by Pacific Ocean, one always feels the wind in his hair for which you won’t have to visit the beach every time. The place has varieties of bars, cafeterias and pubs to spend your time peacefully. Everybody minds their own business in Santa Cruz as in such a beautiful place who would have time to think about anything apart from the city’s beauty.


A vast campus of 2000 acres is something worth an experience. Between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Cruz mountain range lies this beautiful campus of UCSC. The campus is so big that the difference between the elevation of the entrance gate and the last point of the campus is almost of 900Ft. Apart from the college buildings, the campus has a beautiful ‘walk in the jungle’ feature, where any student can go to spend some time and breathe in the fresh air. The McHenry library has a ‘fall into affair’ infrastructure for all the literature lovers.
