Spring Spotlight is an event designed specifically for admitted students and their families, to help them find out if UC Santa Cruz is the right fit for them. The program includes Admissions presentations and daily student-led walking tours, providing an overview of the academic, residential, and student-life experience at UCSC. Students and their families will be able to tour the residential colleges, attend presentations, and visit classrooms. Our regular program of campus tours will be suspended during that time to accommodate our many Spring Spotlight visitors.

To focus on transfer-specific needs, we have scheduled sessions for transfer students only on Friday, April 8 at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. and Saturday, April 9 at 1 p.m. Please note that transfer students are welcome to attend any session, since transfer information is covered in all sessions.

We hope to see you at Spring Spotlight. Remember to wear comfortable walking shoes and to dress in layers for our changeable coastal climate!
