43 Things You Might Not Know...
...about UC Santa Cruz. You may know about UCSC's mascot-the slow, humble, neon-yellow banana slug. You might even know about the intimate feeling within the campus's individual colleges. In honor of the campus's 43rd year, however, here are 43 things we bet you didn't know about UC Santa Cruz.
