What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Riverside, is an under-appreciated UC, often overlooked and overshadowed by its more popular co-parts, such as UCLA and UC Berkeley. Despite this, UC Riverside delivers to its students and is most certainly worth the tuition. Although it is situated in the middle of the desert, the weather is not that bad and there is a lot of activities to partake in. The school's student body actively creates fun events whether it be lectures from YouTube stars, or a movie premiere screening. The school's professors are top tier and you certainly will get the education you deserve and require for today's competitive job market. Overall, the school is amazing and an experience of a lifetime.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Riverside is a decent school. Some students are here to learn and some just aren't. There are plenty of good teachers and plenty of OK ones, but it is important to find one that is best suited for you. The campus is pretty new and clean, but outside of it there just isn't much to do.

I absolutely love UCR! It really feels like an accepting and loving community. Everyone, students, professors, and everyone in between is supportive and helpful. There is always something to do and people are always open to new things. It feels like home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I didn't really consider it when I first was accepted. Once I visited the campus, I kind of fell in love with it. I am currently really enjoying it. It is very underrated honestly. It has garnered somewhat of a bad reputation compared to the other UCs, but don't listen to people who have no idea what they are talking about. Give UCR a chance, and you will most likely be impressed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great school with a relaxed vibe but the push on academics is low. There are many social events to get distracted by and there is a very large party scene. Campus is very inclusive to minorities, but if you are a domestic US student that also happens to be Caucasian, you are usually not included in much,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Riverside overall is a great college to attend if you are looking for inclusion, academics, and cultural significance. Coming from a small, but well-diversified town, I knew that when I went to college I wanted to keep with that same trend and continue to be surrounded by various cultures and ethnicities throughout my academic career and UCR was able to offer that to me. The class sizes are just like any other college, the major you choose and the classes you take ultimately decide the size of your classes. As a psychology major, which at UCR is one of the largest majors in CHASS (College of Humanities Arts and Social Sciences) my first introductory psychology class was about 500 students, but now that I have entered my upper division coursework that number has been reduced to about 100-150 students per class. All of the lectures are partnered with a required discussion section that generally meets once a week and is usually between 10-25 students. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations to get involved in and it is fairly easy to find a job on campus if you want or need one. I think over UCR has a lot to offer students with regard to academics and cultural awareness. Also as with any college, it has is strengths and weaknesses. UCR's biggest strength would be in my opinion, the diversity present on campus. Its biggest weakness would be that if you are looking for a university that is surrounded by a community that is extremely invested in the university (i.e. A "college town") I wouldn't necessarily say that UCR is that college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy attending UCR, I am astonished by the intelligence level of most of my professors and have never had trouble getting in contact with them. I am unable to participate in most on campus activities since I am a commuter, about 100 miles round trip each day, so most all of my free time is spent studying but there always seems to be something going on. Everyone is friendly and willing to talk!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here its absolutely amazing and the people I have met here are awesome. Through the school I have been able to start some professional work in my major, I have been given the chance to be an extra on a movie set, student film set, and a co-star in a music video.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Riverside is a fantastic university to attend for your education. It provides plenty of financial aid so you get a lot of bang for you buck! The UC education system is recognized throughout the world. The people you find at UC Riverside are typically relaxed, kind, and really diverse! Students are really open minded. It is a great place to expand your horizons at. The food is pretty good but nothing to write home about. The class sizes can get pretty tricky since a lot of classes can have 100 or more students within them. Fortunately, every professor that I've had has had weekly office hours so you can get a chance to connect with your professor through that avenue. The weather is typically warm to blistering hot all year around so be prepared to be wearing T-Shirts far more than you'll ever unpack your sweaters. The campus itself is really beautiful! And I think that's something that a lot of individuals do not realize. I have visited every UC campus and in my opinion, UC Riverside has the most character! Its definitely harder to get lost in than a school like UCLA. I highly suggest attending UC Riverside. You get a top of the line world-class education at a beautiful campus for minimal to no costs for tuition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love all my classes, but on weekends there are no events and it gets really boring especially if you don't have a car or anything to get off campus. It's easy to get involved and there are a lot of opportunities if you look and choose to take advantage of them.
