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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A diverse campus far from any other UC campus in California. It’s one of the rising universities in the nation and full of opportunities. The environment is friendly and doesn’t seem to have that academic tension surrounding the students. Personally, I am glad I chose to enroll here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Californja Riverside is an overall great school. There are a variety of majors to choose from and the best part about it is that it is a research school. There may not be much around the school to do but the atmosphere of the campus makes up for it. It is a beautiful campus and there are plenty of ways to get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion with the University of California- Riverside is a very diverse school that gives off a "welcoming" vibe to anyone that decides to enroll there. Additionally, the campus provides a lot of opportunity for success for all students such as the academic resource center or ARC for short. Students can go to the center to get help on their academic work or just need someone to talk to. Having a school that supports students and encourages them to reach out for support really shows that the school is very caring for their students' success. Additionally, there are a lot of professors who are very willing to work with students after class. There are a lot of programs and internships around campus that ensure that students are able to achieve more after they finish school. However, my one complains with UCR is that their parking infrastructure is not that great. There are a lot of students who commute yet there are very little parking spaces available. The school should invest in more parking structure for students and faculties.
