The Bottom Line

The Bottom Line provides a printed and online space for investigative journalism, culturally and socially aware commentary, and engaging reporting that addresses the diverse concerns of our readership, including UCSB and its surrounding community. Created in early 2007 in response to concerns there should be another newspaper on campus.

Creative Media Unit

The Creative Media Unit serves to provide an opportunity for undergraduate students to hone and advance their multimedia skills, particularly pertaining to the fields of graphic and web design and videography. The AS Media Center provides free camera and equipment rentals, and a computer lab equipped with professional design and video software.

The AS Media Center is a fully student funded creative space available to UCSB undergraduate and graduate students equipped to help  with everything from creating a simple flyer to producing a video documentary about something that you’re passionate about.

Program Board

AS Program Board is a student-operated non-profit organization funded by lock-in fees which aims to coordinate fun and educational events for the UC Santa Barbara community. Appointed student board members gain hands-on experience in planning, booking, advertising, and running various events ranging from intimate open mics to 10,000 capacity festivals.
