UCSB to Host ‘Spring Insight’ Open House

The free program on April 10 will include lectures, demonstrations and tours

UCSB will host its annual “Spring Insight” open house for prospective students and their families from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 10.

The daylong program of lectures, demonstrations and tours is designed to showcase what UCSB has to offer undergraduate students. It is also a fun way to get to know the campus and learn about the opportunities it offers for academic and personal growth.

While intended primarily for admitted students and their family members, the program is open to all potential future students as well as the public. The event is free. Reservations are recommended, but not required. Parking on campus in designated lots and all parking structures will be free for participants from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There will be presentations on financial aid, including UC’s Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan, campus housing, the Educational Opportunity Program, the colleges of engineering, creative studies, letters and sciences and more. Representatives from campus organizations and departments will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

In addition, UCSB faculty members will deliver lectures on a variety of topics, including “Crises of Climate, Oil and Water,” “Music and Narrative in Hollywood Films,” “The Trouble With Immigration” and “Cracking the Mysteries of the Egg.”

Student guides wearing yellow Spring Insight T-shirts will welcome and direct visitors, alongside staff members wearing blue UCSB polo shirts.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
