"Choosing to apply to CCS mathematics was one of the best decisions I have ever made. This program was a serious selling point for my choice in attending UCSB. Never in my life have I been so academically challenged or engaged. As a result of this, I'm working harder than I have in my life but I couldn't possibly enjoy it more. All the professors in this program are brilliant, and they truly care that their students LEARN the material and understand the concepts as opposed to regurgitate definitions. I'm very pleased with my choice, and am looking forward to the years to come ." Alex Sheftel and Ian Bloom CCS Mathematics Student
