Young Alumni

The Olé Network provides young alumni the ability to join communities of Gauchos socializing, networking and reconnecting with UC Santa Barbara. Olé groups are active in San Francisco, LA and San Diego. The benefits of Olé include networking, events such as happy hours, Acro-Yoga, hiking, and community service. There are leadership opportunities on each regional Olé board, professional development, and most important, you stay connected with UCSB!
