The new UCSC Slug Support program was created to promote early intervention with students of concern to prevent culminating problems from escalating into a crisis. They are seeking donations for the program, (i.e. toiletries, towels, blankets, pillows, etc.) even if they are slightly soiled or damaged. Click here to see if you can help.

View photos from past events on our Events page. We've recently added photos from the Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair, the Boardwalk Tour and the September BBQ.
