What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California-Riverside is a great school that some may not know about. It may not be considered the best UC for some, but it a place that will make you feel welcomed, safe, and at home. UCR has many programs and resources that help students out and as well as many great individuals who are willing to guide them. From Professors to TA's and Academic Advisors, life at UCR isn't as difficult when you have them wanting whats best for their students. You get to see a bright future ahead of you and you can feel like you can achieve anything. I love UCR because it has allowed me to show my full potential and skills as well as meet many new people that will forever remain in my heart.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I admire that the University of California-Riverside is diverse both racially and culturally. As a Latin American, I do not feel like a minority, and it is refreshing to learn next to people who were brought up completely different than myself. Diversity ranges between both students and teachers. Despite lectures having 200+ people, we are still able to get more one-on-one time with both our professors and our TA’s. We break into smaller discussion sessions that allow for us to discuss topics more in depth and get a better understanding. Professors also hold regular office hours which makes it easier to directly ask questions. There are also plenty of resources on campus for different causes, and they are always successfully advertised to ensure students are informed of them. Many of these resources include workshops, tutoring, career guidance, counseling, and so much more. UCPD also sends out regular emails to all students so that everyone is aware of what is occurring on campus, and we may remain vigilant. School facilities, restrooms, lounges, and the food courts are well stocked and well maintained. Allowing for a comfortable and clean environment. Although the ​University of California-Riverside has many great attributes, I do have negative feedback pertaining to parking. Not only are the parking lots located a few miles from actual classes, but space is very limited. Showing up an hour before a lecture is not enough time to find parking, and still hike to class, which is outrageous! Overall, the University of California-Riverside is a very safe, clean, and welcoming campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in my junior year and have had a good experience so far. Other than one class, my professors have been helpful in assisting maintain a high GPA. Campus life is interesting and can be fun. When I'm not writing papers or studying for a quiz or test, I am assisting with research programs or handing our with students who share similar interests as mine, going to medical school. I do like the sporting events and volunteering during freshman orientation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a beautiful campus with a lot of extracurriculars activities to help me stay sane. Their Creative Writing degree is the main reason I enrolled, there's nothing else like it. The students and staff were very friendly and nice during orientation, which really set aside a lot of the fears I had about transferring to a large campus. Eager to get started!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Riverside is a very diverse school that offers many opportunities for those interested in networking, or simply seeking something more than just academics. From clubs to sports teams, UCR definitely does a great job of making their students feel welcomed as it caters to many different interests and career paths. With that being said, UCR can improve on things such as the commuter parking system, and classroom seat accommodation. If these two were of higher quality, I would have had no concerns enrolling in class, or arriving on time consistently.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California- Riverside is a great educational institute that enhances their student's interests. This university also helps their students learn more about themselves and grow as a person while promoting school spirit. There is various school resources for all the students who need help either academically or emotionally. This is a school where everyone can feel welcomed but most importantly included into one big highlander family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California- Riverside is an awesome school. We have so many staff members who care about the students and it's such a diverse community of students. As for the dorms, some are a bit dated, but not totally unbearable. The food is actually decent and not bad compared to other colleges, but that's just my personal preference. What makes the University so amazing is the amount of resources that are provided for students from different backgrounds. The leaders part of the ASPB try to give you the best and most memorable college experience, along with making sure you complete college. Go Highlanders!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although a lot of people might put you down for coming here, don't be ashamed. It's actually a great school with amazing professors and great resources. Also, the negativity surrounding UCR is starting to fade because of how quickly they're moving up the ranks. It's actually crazy. The diversity is real, not just on a pamphlet which makes getting an education as a LGBT student of color more comfortable. My main complaints are the housing situations which completely suck once you're no longer a freshman and the questionable staff in the higher offices. Housing as a second year and up on campus is horrible and to live off campus, I hope you're willing to live super cramped in an apartment. Events are lit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think University of California-Riverside is a great school. It once had a bad reputation for being simply a party school but in recent years it has become evident that it is growing into a real academic contender. Although the school is small the campus is still very welcoming. The people are kind and try to be understanding of one another making it a very inclusive school. If I was still in high school and had to choose between UCR and any other school I would pikc UCR all over again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCR is a semi-good school. There is definitely a wide variety of people and most of the professors enjoy their teaching. There are some extracurricular events, but I think that there should be more surrounding the arts area. Unfortunately, the environment surrounding the school is sometimes dangerous since Riverside is not considered a safe city.
