  University of California, Santa Cruz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The University of California, Santa Cruz, also known as UCSC or UC Santa Cruz, is one of the ten campuses of the University of California.
Although the original founders had outlined their plans for the University in the 1930s, the opportunity did not present itself to realize their vision until the City of Santa Cruz made a bid to the University of California Regents in the mid-1950s to build a campus in the mountains outside town.
In January 2006, UCSC was the subject of an article in The New York Times discussing the school's opposition to military recruiters and allegations of spying on one of the campus's anti war groups.

Santa Cruz was first settled by the Ohlone, Native American hunter-gatherers who inhabited the region between 500 BCE and the early colonial period.
Santa Cruz was discovered by Spanish exlorer Don Gaspar de Portola in 1769 and was subsequently colonized in the mid-1700s by Spain, which established both a mission (Mission Santa Cruz) and a secular settlement named Branciforte.
Santa Cruz is home to the University of California, Santa Cruz, which was built starting in the 1960s as an 'alternative' campus with a residential college system based on the British system, (see University of Cambridge or University of Oxford).
