Overall Experience: Love it! Great teachers and students.

Off-Campus Housing: 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.

Academics: 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.

Parking: 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: 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.

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

4 College Senior

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.

3 College Senior

Transportation: 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.

Drug Safety: 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.

5 College Senior

Weather: 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.

1 College Senior

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

4 College Junior

Parking: 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.

1 College Junior

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

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: 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.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: 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.

5 College Senior

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

5 College Senior

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.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: 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

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: 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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

2 College Junior

Diversity: After completing my first quarter at AUSB, I haven't noticed much diversity. I have had only white and Hispanic classmates, and haven't seen a variety of ethnic or racial backgrounds. The school though is open to diversity and encourages students' acceptance of diversity.
