What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy being at UC Merced. While it was intimidating at first, I gradually got to know more people. It's really easy as everyone is so nice. There's a lot of different clubs to join and I'd highly recommend getting involved. I like that the marketplace allows you to use your meal plan there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy how peaceful it is I have come accustomed to how different it is from other colleges I'm in love with it. The serenity that I get from just being there helps me from feeling some type of homesick. I enjoy the views of the sky and how beautiful it is to be outside. Although the campus might not be as big I enjoy just how it is and am glad that there will be renovations. The library is my favorite place and its cool that I get to meet different people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a college freshman attending the school, I don't have any solid opinions of the school overall. However, from what I experienced I could say that the school does its job well when it comes to education, and it is a nice community. There are people who are willing to talk and there are many opportunities to find a group for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like UC Merced a lot. I came from a big city to this rural town, which was a big change for me, but after about a month I got used to it and I enjoy my time on and off-campus. The campus itself is small, even with the current expansion plans, which I like. The small size or the campus and classes allows for more meaningful relationships to grow. It's easy to find a group to connect with, and friendships made here are strong. While they could definitely update the older dorm building interiors and amenities, it's still nice to have everything on campus within a reasonable distance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an okay school, I UCs are meant to be difficult but there is something about the life on this campus that kind of bores you. I like the life off campus more than on campus, even though I have never lived on campus. It was my second choice of school because of the distance from my home town, not too far not too close. The accessibility of the professors makes communication easy and seems like they genuinely care about the problems happening. I do notice that there are not as many pre-medicine clubs, most are fraternities or sororities which makes me slightly uneasy because I am not one to join either so I wonder how will I get more information about the career I want to go into. I appreciate all the services they provide and how accessible they are to me even though I am off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is great if you want to graduate on time and debt free. The cost of living is very low and there are numerous scholarship and financial aid opportunities. The professors are excellent and the class sizes are not too big. The facilities are still very new and the campus is expanding. This really is an excellent school to get a UC education at an affordable price.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are an individual who enjoys city-life, going out with friends, and overall enjoys night life, UCM is NOT for you. But if you are someone who enjoys small-town things and appreciates what it has to offer, UCM might be for you. From personal experience, I am a big city person, and thus I had to find out the hard way that UCM was indeed not the scene for me. But it might be for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the University of California, Merced is that its one of the newest UC campus. Don't let that fool you because there are many opportunities that the school offers students.Although the school is in the middle of nowhere, it makes a good place to learn and see what the town has to offer for college students.The university is not a party institution so don't expect much from it. It's more of a college town for students who want to live here and attend school. Even though it is a smaller university, you will come to see its beauty and welcome it as your home for the next 4 years.Being from a younger university has its perks because you have a smaller class size, the campus is walking distance, and getting to know your professors. The school has many opportunities available for students who are looking for an internship or a job. It's a good school if you want to focus on your academics and gain a newer experience of what college is about. The school could potentially be for you if you want to go to a university in California and still get the experience of college, then apply for it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's amazing! I'm glad I made the choice to come here. I wouldn't change my decision even if I could. Coming to UC Merced was the best thing I ever decided to do. It isn't too big, so it's not as stressful. It feels like a home away from home. Some people get overwhelmed being thrown into a large campus, but at Merced, everyone knows where everything is, and there's always help available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that the school is a good one because the students seem very focused on what we are doing. However, because we are the newest UC I believe we can improve some things such as our food and communication through to students, but it's not entirely bad.
