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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California, Riverside is an excellent school for those living locally in Riverside along with students from other states and foreign nations looking to educate themselves. My personal recommendation is the College of Natural Agricultural Sciences, where one may learn of the principals of biology and chemistry through physical trials within the labs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

i have just completed my first year of college and loved it here. obviously i have nothing to compare it to, but the classes seemed difficult and up to par with the other UCs. food on campus is pretty good (habit and hibachi are my favs) and there is a little plaza just down the street. really close to downtown too!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I didn’t really consider the value of diversity in my life until I became a Highlander. Classes, though large, are filled with students from a wide array of nationalities and socioeconomic backgrounds. There are student resource centers for many minority groups represented on campus, but all are open for anyone to visit regardless of identity. Pockets of likeminded people who bond over sharing the same niche interests form the over 500 clubs that exist on campus. There’s really nothing that feels homogeneous about this university, except for maybe the distinct feeling of desolation students often experience while waiting in the always-long line for the Financial Aid office, or maybe the anxious frustration that builds from fruitlessly driving around the overcrowded parking lot as the clock ticks down to the start of class. In the center of campus stands the Belltower, which has its own Twitter account (started in 2012) that updates its followers on the time with a “BONG” for each hour followed by AM or PM. Surrounding the tower are the large patches of grass where student clubs, sororities, fraternities, and other organizations set up their tents and tables to recruit members or advertise. Every Wednesday, the Associated Students Program Board, which oversees programming campus entertainment sets up a stage for a different live artist to perform. Even if you don’t have time to stop and watch, you can still recognize the ambiance from the speakers and the energy from the crowd as you make your way to class. This is the same patch of grass used for the graduation commencement ceremony. Four years of walking back and forth around it led to walking across a stage set up right in the middle of it, with my family and friends cheering on my greatest achievement in life so far. I’m proud to call UCR my alma mater.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it. It is a quiet campus with a wide variety of opportunities to expand socially and educationally. The amount of programs offered is fathoming from beekeeping to videogaming. Moreover, the student hold a great enthusiasm and speak intelligently but in a manner where it is respectful and easy to understand.
