What the students are saying about:

University of California-Irvine (5 of 10)

University of California-Irvine

"The academics at UCI could not be better! We are the number 13th research university and if you look into some departments we are in the top 5 if not number 1! Professors are incredibly easy to seek out, in fact I am currently overwhelmed because I have too many collaboration projects with professors and recently I have gotten to CHOOSE between which WORLD RENOWNED professors I am going to work with," raves Troy, a junior. UC Irvine is often overshadowed by some of the other state schools in California, but in recent years, the school's reputation and academic offerings has increased dramatically to make it one of the state's best places to study. "The best thing about UCI is that it is always becoming better. It seems that the school's academic reputation is continually increasing as well. The campus could quite possibly be one of the best out of all the UCs -- it is very well organized and has tons of plants. The atmosphere is very calming. There are many good facilities for students to use."
