What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy my campus. Like any other campus there are problems but they are not serious enough to the point where students get distracted. The campus is really big so there is always a place to do your homework or hang out. They are currently under construction, building new buildings but in the classrooms you cannot hear anything. I would recommend this campus to anyone because overall it is an excellent university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the school and the people are very friendly. Some people bag on this school for being "UC Rejects", but those people are just missing out. At first the whole dorm experience was a bit nerve wrecking, but it is actually really enjoyable. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity that people should not miss.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Riverside has top notch programs (many in 2018 Top 100 US News Rank) and great, diverse people! It's growing faster than ANY OTHER UC and shooting up the ranks! The only reason why it, Merced, and Davis get made fun of at times is because of "crappier" inland locations for those wanting to be by the "big city" or beach. Academics were always most important to me, along with that UCR Highlander "Personal Touch" that other UC's lacked. Average GPA is now 3.7, ACT of 27, SAT score of 1190, with a 57 percent student acceptance rate and getting tougher ever year. Definitely no walk in the park!! I was there a long time ago when there was only West Lothian (my dorm), and Aberdeen and Inverness (A&I). No East Lothian or Pentland Hills back then! The current students are lucky since back in my day there was no new student recreation center or movie theatre mall right next to campus off University Avenue. We still had a lot of fun!! Studied very hard...also went to the occasional house party (or lower key dorm get together events), saw some great "nooner" concerts at the bell tower and at "The Barn" (Blink 182 and No Doubt played there) as well as taking the stairs to the top of the bell tower, attending athletic events, playing intermural sports, hiking to the "C" (did this once on a freezing winter night with dorm mates and got sick the next day). We also worked out HARD in the old school gym they used to have (metal free weights and Universal Machines) which was fine for us! The University of California System is one of the best in the world holding national and international acclaim. Received an excellent education and college experience! Graduating from UC Riverside was one of the best decisions of my life!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm so glad I get to go to such a great school! The campus is beautiful, the instructors are always available and are great people to work with, the overall vibe is to become better people, not just to get a higher education. I feel almost at home with my peers and can't wait to graduate with my class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the campus is clean and nice to be at. There is a very diverse group of students with great faculty. Facilities are clean and well kept. Although there are not a lot of services and restaurants close within walking distance, they are accessible through public transportation which is free for all UCR students.

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.
