Kathleen Tuite - Computer Science Major - Regents and Plantronics Scholar

"Professors here are extremely accessible.  Not only are they dedicated to students' progress in class, but they also strive to inspire us, encourage us to think creatively, and introduce us to their own work so that we are aware that there is more out there than just homework and exams - that there is a whole world of research going on that we, too, can be a part of."

Why is UC Santa Cruz the right choice for you?
"There are tons of opportunities available, from tutoring for specific departments, to working directly with professors, to all the extracurricular clubs and activities.  UCSC was definitely the right choice for me because I did take advantage of a lot of these opportunities, and now I feel well-rounded, optimistic, and prepared to go out into the world and make a positive impact."
