On the southern California coast is the town of Santa Barbara, a college town that hosts the University of California at Santa Barbara. UCSB, as it is known, is one of ten campuses in the University of California system. Founded in 1891 as a teachers college, UCSB joined the University system in 1944. Situated on over 1000 acres of rich southern California real estate, the college enjoys the warm climate and fair weather provided by its latitude. Santa Barbara is also home to Raytheon Electronic Systems (the largest non-educational/non-governmental service employer). UCSB alumni include many Nobel Prize winners in the science fields as well as actors Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow.
