Mosher Welcomes Largest Gaucho


Meet UCSB’s newest 7 foot, 800-pound Gaucho at Mosher Alumni House. Born in Argentina, the bronze sculpture arrived at UCSB in April thanks to a donor who saw a perfect fit. He was created in Argentina by sculptor Teresa Farga de Corominas, a respected and accomplished international artist. "The Gaucho" is installed at the entrance of Mosher, welcoming alumni, students and friends. Learn more here.

Isla Vista Gets a Dose of Jazz


The legendary Critical Brass Band, originally from New Orleans and now based in Los Angeles, performed on April 8 in a Mardi Gras style parade featuring music and dancing through Isla Vista. Co-sponsored by UC Santa Barbara Alumni and Jeffrey’s Jazz Coffeehouse, the band began at Embarcardero Hall and played through Isla Vista to Giovanni's Pizza. A "Second Line" of students and community members followed, dancing and celebrating in true New Orleans fashion.

All Gaucho Reunion Wrap


Thank you to all who attended UC Santa Barbara Alumni’s All Gaucho Reunion 2017! It was one of the best ever thanks to your participation, enthusiasm and support. In addition to the camaraderie, reconnecting and reminiscing that took place throughout the weekend, you showed your love for UCSB through your generosity. You raised thousands of dollars to help students through scholarships and food donations to the Associated Students Food Bank. Go Gauchos!

"The Gaucho" isn't the only new face at Mosher. UC Santa Barbara Alumni is happy to welcome Karen Ravago-Ballaret to our team. Karen is creating opportunities as Director of Alumni Professional Engagement. In her newly created position, Karen will engage alumni with career focused programming.
