UC Santa Cruz has an amazing program. They also have a really dope ski club that goes up to tahoe on a lot of weekends.
Two notable graduates from the UCSC program include Lorin Ashton (Bassnectar), and Steve Duda (recorded Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, Christina Aguilera, Sugar Ray, and is Deadmau5's studio buddy currently). Steve Duda also makes some of the dankest plugins known to man like LFO Tool and Nerve.
Santa Cruz is a dope town with a lot of surfing and skateboarding to be had as well as an awesome music scene. Their bars are absolutely insane as well.
I would consider UCSC if I were you.
