College Life in Wine Country

So I attended UCSB, which as you probably have noticed, is in Santa Barbara.  SBCC is one of the top city college’s in the country for a number of different programs as well.

You might be wondering what it’s like to attend college in California’s most picturesque wine country.  Yes, the beach is only a few miles away.  Yes, Sideways was filmed in the area and there are numerous top flight internationally recdognized wineries as well.  To start, no there weren’t wine gifts left on our doorsteps every day of the year as some people at Sonoma State talk about, after all there is a ton of other things to do in Santa Barbara.  Overall it was a ton of fun and I really enjoyed the ability to do so many interesting things both in terms of wine, but also in terms of simply enjoying myself and the place where I lived.
