How UC is ringing out the summer
School’s out! But for the University of California community, summer isn’t just a vacation.
UC campuses are bustling hubs of activity even in the scorching heat. More than 75,000 students can be found at the system’s campuses, medical centers and labs during the summer months, studying in libraries, conducting research or taking classes to get ahead on credits.
At UC Santa Barbara, students are putting pen to paper at the UC Student Veterans Summer Writing Workshop. “We hold the workshop in the summer because it allows student veterans from all UC campuses to participate,” says Susan Derwin, the workshop’s director and founder. “It’s a way for veterans to feel empowered, connect with civilian members and receive support from their community.”
When spring classes come to an end, UC keeps moving, providing opportunities for students, staff, faculty and the entire community to experience all that UC has to offer. From art exhibitions to expert panels, find out what the UC community has been doing this summer.
