SB is very pricey. Splitting an apartment might be the best way to go here. I am not aware of any housing program through the school.

There is no Greek life at AUSB. You just have to meet people and party with them. The people in SB tend to be open to Happy Hour, and a lot of people there under 40 are into going out at night.

Two people out of my program received a scholarship that covered a portion of a quarter's worth of their tuitions.

Antioch provides a great atmosphere for learning. Each course is a blend of lecture, reading, writing, demonstration, and class collaboration.
The MACP program is aligned with the standards of the CBBS to allow students to be eligible for CA MFT licensing. The pass rate on the exams are over something over 80% (I forget exactly) according to the school's administration.

The campus is so tiny, you don't need transportation. It is located in Downtown Santa Barbara which as plenty of public transportation, but there is no school provided transportation because it is unnecessary.

You'll be living in Southern California! Santa Barbara, no less! It is beautiful here year round.

There is a lot of work to be done, so there is not much time to be doing anything else.
College Senior 2012-11-27T00:01:09Z
There is no provided parking for the school, so students have to provide their own transportation in the middle of a downtown location. NOT GOOD!

Parking is a hassle. Their is no parking lot assigned to the school, so you must look for parking on the street or a parking garage near by.

Public transportation is really good and buses are always running. They are easy to use and affordable.

Health & Safety:
Antioch is all in one building and all classes are easy to get to. There is a security guard on site so that if someone needs to get walked to their car. Santa Barbara is a pretty safe area in general.

I live 2.5 hours away from our school, When the program began there were classes about 1 hour away at Alan Hancock College, but the relationship ended with Antioch Univ. for whatever reason. So it's caused me to drive to Santa Barbara weekly. I do carpool with some other ladies in my area, but I doubt there will be many that continue on to the Master's Program to car pool with.

There are a few students that report partying on the weekends and some that talk openly about using marijuana for stress or other medical reasons; as they have medical cards for the drug. The ones that are users find each other, but there are also students that are in recovery and they also find each other. I don't care for the students that openly use before class.

Santa Barbara weather is always sunny, but with a breeze so it's not muggy or stuffy there. I always bring a jacket, but barely ever need it outside. Periodically it's really hot, like 90's, but this is very seldom since it's close to the ocean breezes.

There are no athletics. There are no Physical Education Classes or sports.

Single Bldg Campus – With one large building as the entire Campus AUSB needs a student life area, student activities, a student voice, and on campus parking.
AUSB excels in liberal arts academics and in areas of social justice and diversity.

None Currently – I continue to check the school's website for scholarships, but due to bad economy, scholarships are not widely available.

Downtown Santa Barbara – The new campus is located in downtown Santa Barbara, so there are a lot of things to do between classes or after school. MA classes meet once per week and that is why I love it. I get to work full-time and go to school full-time. It is not easy but worth it.

What is Greek Life? In Graduate School, you just do a lot of work. Not much socializing or playing.

Small Class Sizes – The small class sizes offer a chance for everyone to get to know one another, make lasting friendships, network, and great opportunities for class participation.

Favorite Experiences – Some professors arrange for field trips or for their students to attend special events free of charge.

Health & Safety:
Totally Safe – I feel like I am at home or at the local library. I can leave my things in the open classrooms and nothing gets stolen. There are a few security guards once it gets dark.

Many Clubs Available – There are a number of bars, clubs and restaurants in Santa Barbara. I am not very interested in that scene so am not a good reviewer on this topic
Recent Alumnus 2011-06-27T22:14:58Z
Many Options That Vary in Price. Student Friendly – Santa Barbara is bursting with great places to eat and AUSB is located in the heart of downtown within walking distance of food and shopping. My friends and I walked to lunch every day and ate somewhere different each time for nearly all the year.

A Great Experience – AUSB is very different from other universities; instructors base their evaluations on the work from the students through the different quarters. There are no tests or quizzes, but there's a lot to read and a lot to write. Learning from the interactions between instructors and other students is a great way to actually remember and understand better whatever you are learning.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
