What is your overall opinion of this school?

On Campus Housing: I've lived in Pentland for 2 years and have been living in Glen Mor for 2 years. The rooms are clean and nice, but we have thin walls here. I can literally hear people from next room or downstairs chat. Depending on the location, the loud garbage trucks will wake you up in the morning. The elevators in the older buildings are sloooow. Besides that, I'm satisfied. However, Pentland and Glen Mor are very expensive, so do look into other housing options if you can. Off Campus Housing: Off campus apartments provided by the school are relatively cheap. I've been to Oban once and it was very nice but I think they could've made the living room smaller and the bedrooms bigger. The bedrooms are still enough for one person, though. Other off campus apartments are cheaper and furnished (unlike Oban) but the buildings are old. Houses in Riverside in general are very cheap, around $400-$500/month including the utility. However, the area is not safe to be walking around alone at night. If you think you are going to have classes till late, consider living on campus. It may not save your money, but it may save your life. Campus Food: The dining hall food tastes okay for a year, but you'll get sick of it beyond that. I prefer food from food trucks (tacos from Chameleon are bomb), HUB, the Barn, or Subway. Snacks from the campus convenient stores are expensive, but we have variety of options. Students do complain about the food options on campus, but I personally think we have enough (considering the fact that I also cook things for myself). Campus Facilities:

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am not a fan of UCR. I have had problems registering for classes every single quarter. Between prerequisite clearance and crappy registration times, so that by the time it's my turn the classes are full, to an awful schedule because you have to take any class available regardless of when its at. I haven't been able to get a job my entire time here because of how awful my class schedule is. The academic advisors are no help and the teachers pretend like they care, but offer no real guidance. My class sizes will be 300+ students until the day I graduate because the psychology major was over admitted. I will never benefit from more intimate class settings and that is really unfortunate. The surround area is full of the homeless population and the prices for what you get are outrageous. I am not a fan of Riverside and wish I would have never decided to attend this school. What a joke for a "University of California".

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe this school has the potential to be one of the best schools across the country. It is well-known for being a diverse school. There are lots of programs one could join that can help ease the transition from high school to college. Coursework does go a bit as it is based on a quarter system.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that University of California-Riverside is a place where freshmens don't feel that shocking transition when entering the university for their first time. UCR is a diverse university, so many students can feel comfortable and their aren't as many criticism towards whats happening in the outside world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful school with a large variety of people with different backgrounds. I am looking forward to attending this school in the fall. There are many majors to choose from, lots of great professors (from what I've heard), and lots of activities to get involved in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a recently admitted student, and was able to see the campus first hand. While I was there, I witnessed the beautiful open campus and amazing faculty. I felt very safe walking around and I never had to question whether or not I could actually be a student at this university. In addition to getting a grasp on what life at UCR was like, I was able to meet with friendly tour guides, open student and state of the art facilities. Overall while visiting the college I was able to make my final decision to commit to UCR and become a Highlander.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that UC Riverside has a beautiful, enlightening campus in which there are a variety of different factors that makes this specific school different from others. Its affiliation with different companies such as cuties-a company that produces oranges, helps give the campus character for it embraces these types of agriculture and incorporates it throughout the campus. Its unique architecture reflects the diversity of the campus along with the distinctive club and extra curricular actives that the whole student body can be part of. On this campus, people are welcoming and enjoy contributing to society and ensuring they're making a difference in this world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is very welcoming with a wide diversity of students. The professors are also very kind and helpful as they are always having office hours available for students to come for help if needed, There are also a wide variety of clubs on campus, with most of them do tabling outside every week showcasing their clubs and inviting other students to join.
