Become an Affiliate of the University of California, Santa Cruz

You are invited to become a member of the oldest campus support group.

The Affiliates come from a variety of backgrounds but have one thing in common: a belief in higher education and the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The Affiliates enjoy many opportunities:

  • Behind-the-scenes tours of the wonderful facilities the campus has to offer
  • Informed discussions led by faculty and staff
  • Touring the beautiful gardens at the Arboretum
  • Getting to know each other at our annual Garden Party, Scholarship luncheon and other various receptions and events.

Affiliates meet together as a group, as couples, or individuals for use of:

  • Various Campus Colleges for Presentations
  • The UCSC Pool and Sports Facilities
  • The Libraries
  • Farm & Garden Project
  • Arboretum
  • Lick Observatory
  • Seymour Center at Long Marine Lab
  • The Recital Hall
  • The Performing Arts Center

The Affiliates are reaching out to the Community in town and with our Friends on Campus:

  • To Promote Cultural and Academic Awareness
  • Create a Bridge Between Town and Campus
  • Offer Events for Intellectual and Friendship Comradery

The Affiliates hold monthly meetings of the Planning Committee and the Board of Directors.

We welcome your contribution to our continuing dialog while planning events, making friends and having fun!
