Real Life Values

Real Life is not about religion, but about relationships - read more. Real Life is not about conformity, but about creativity. Real Life is not about rules, but about principles. Real Life is not about formalities, but about friendships. Real Life is not about having all the answers, but about asking the right questions.

Our Community

Coming to a new school and meeting a bunch of new people can be overwhelming at times. Thatís why we put on fun events that allow students to get to know each other and help develop friendships throughout the year. Keep a look out for upcoming events.

Letter from the Director

Dear Students:

Are you an incoming freshmen, a transfer student, new to Real Life? If so, we want to welcome you to UCSB and invite you to come check out Real Life and the other activities we have to offer. We have small group life studies throughout campus to help you make friends and learn more about the Bible. Be sure to check out our Fall, Christmas, and Spring retreats.

Going to college is an exciting time and is undoubtedly one of the best times in your life you will have to go deeper in your relationships with one another and in your relationship with God. We want to help you maximize these relationships during your time here. Feel free to email me with any questions and we look forward to meeting you soon! God Bless!
