Hello UCSB and Isla Vista!

This year, the Office of the External Vice President for Local Affairs is taking steps to maintain your safety and enjoyment during the Halloween Season of 2013. These steps include supporting and consistently updating the Halloween website (www.ucsbhalloween.com), and launching a series of campaigns meant to educate you about ways to keep safe and happy over Halloween weekend.

One of the most helpful things you can do to protect yourself and your home during this time of year is to stay informed. There have been changes made since last year on issues regarding parking (on campus and in IV), roadblocks, and county ordinances that arise as a result of Halloween. There are many ways you can stay informed. These include but are not limited to:

  • Checking this website periodically for updates (http://www.ucsbhalloween.com)
  • Attending the Halloween Town Forum on October 21st from 7:00pm-8:30pm in Embarcadero Hall. This will give you the opportunity to have your voice heard and get your questions answered! See the Events tab on our website for additional details.
  • Contacting our office by emailing either the EVPLA or Community Events Coordinator (email addresses are below).

We also encourage you to help keep Halloween a fun and local event. Please do not invite any out-of-town guests into IV for the weekend. Every year there are serious environmental, physical, and fiscal implications that occur as a result of the high number of individuals that visit from out of town. Isla Vista has become a place that our community has come to know and love, and we would like to ask that you help maintain the high level of respect we have for our home by not inviting guests from out of town.

Our Office is here to serve YOU, the students! Please be aware that we are happy to function as a resource for you in all issues regarding Isla Vista or the broader Santa Barbara County not just during Halloween season, but also throughout the entire year. Thank you for your support and cooperation, and have a great Halloween!
