O on Campus
updated: Dec 11, 2012, 1:58 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I work at UCSB and overheard some students saying that Oprah was on campus today and just left. Does anyone know what Oprah was doing here (and during finals week)?

"You get massive student loan debt! You get overpriced textbooks! You get increased tuition!"

Wish it would have been a car.

Hey, Roger--pretty sly reference there. I "neil" down to you.

I dunno if this is the case, but when I went to high school here locally, saying that "Oprah will be on campus!" was a running trick/joke told by teachers to get kids to come to class that day - usually a test day.

She's buying the campus to turn it into a school for wayward kids.

Wait, that's what it is already! Talk about a waste of money.

She needs to make a donation before the end of the year to get a tax write off. She was with the Chancellor and his wife.

Perhaps she was there to comment on the new logo..............

 

 COMMENT 353036P agree helpful negative off topic

Good! Maybe she can talk some sense into the people who designed the new logo. Failing that maybe she can just buy the whole thing and put her stamp on it.

That new logo has got to go. The original one is just fine.

She went to SBCC a few months back. At the time I heard she was trying to find suitable matriculation for grads from her school in Africa. Maybe she was scouting UCSB too.

This is newsworthy?

A true Santa Barbaran (in spirit) treats the local celebs like everyone else.

Oprah wants you to live a fulfilling,compassionate life. Gawking is unbecoming and a wasteful way to spend your precious moments on this planet.

I'm with 096 Who cares? This fawning over celebrities and the fools that chase them or pay money on e-bay for an old sock, or some other meaningless relic worn by (so and so) are pitiful!

S'Auntie Barbara,

I hardly thing asking a question on Edhat is 'gawking'.

963: I am a UCSB graduate. I know numerous other UCSB graduates who have gone on to have very successful careers (and lives), many of whom stayed in the area and continue to contribute positively to our community. We're not all "wayward kids"... It's unfortunate that you would assume so.

Here Here, 365! Shame on any Santa Barbarian for putting down their LOCAL University! As a recent UCSB student (and lifelong Santa Barbara local), I can say that my education was top-notch. UCSB is wonderful place not only for academics, but students actually learn to balance their lives - most of the people I knew held down jobs, internships, graduated with high marks, and still managed to enjoy some "wayward" leisure time.

As for all the people who claim to "not care" about why Oprah was on campus, why did you read this article? As the great Oprah Winfrey once said, "Don't throw stones in glass houses..."
