As a UCSC student, I think it does a lot for the community, from working with the Homeless Garden Project to students volunteering in schools around town.
Caitlin Mannix, Santa Cruz, Student/Waitress
No. Just by comparison, UC Santa Cruz doesn’t integrate with the town anywhere near as much as a lot of other places.
Fergus Ferrier, Santa Cruz, Teacher
I think UCSC is a tremendous asset for the community in many ways, and like any of us it could probably do more.
Rev. Beth Love, Santa Cruz, Minister
No. If they had stopped at 10,000 to 12,000 students, it would have benefited the community, school and students—and housing wouldn’t be overpriced.
Mike McKee, Santa Cruz, Sculptor
I wish they still had Shakespeare Santa Cruz up there. That would be a fundamental contribution to the community.
