What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going into UCSD, I wasn't too extremely happy. Although UCSD was my top 3 choices, it still wasn't my top 1. However, as weeks passed and new friends and experiences were made, I quickly learned to enjoy the environment of the campus and everyone around it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is not that great for academics as everyone claim, there are good professors and most are nice and helpful but you don't learn anything from lectures, students are better off learning the material by themselves, only that competitive atmosphere of studying hard for their classes makes UCSD student academically good. Only I-clickers forces students to attend classes, I feel nobody wants to attend the lectures. social wise, the campus doesn't feel alive, I don't find it vibrant and a happy place, IMO students are anti-social and nerdy like the stereotype of the school, students are segregated by race and hang out with their own ethnicity, Americans complain about high Asian population in campus while I as an immigrant find Asians much politer than a typical American teenager at UCSD, some American teenagers haven't learned manner and are complete trash..... sorry but not sorry . Clubs aren't that interesting, most of them are either religious or ethnicity related clubs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academically, the school is great because it provides a variety of resources for students. The social experience; however, could be enhanced if our school was bigger on sports. Also, our school's parking system is horrible and unfair for students. There are not enough parking spaces and the parking pass is expensive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It needs a big team like football for the entire school to rally behind and get out more. Too many people leave campus on the weekend instead of staying on campus to party and have fun. It is almost like the administration wants to baby you and play board games opposed to going out with friends and experiencing life while having fun. Additionally the school needs another gym that has free weights and can workout at. Additionally the school needs to stop trying to make so much money off of the students who are already broke and focus on creating a happier, more enjoyable campus with enough parking spaces.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is very competitive and beautiful, but lacks in school spirit. The people and staff on campus are amazing and are ready to help you transition into college. We don't have a football team which sucks, but at the same time we are a very competitive in the STEM field.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school for academics, and although the courses can be a bit challenging, I believe that's what makes UCSD one of the best research schools in the world. Universities are meant to train the next generation to be the best experts in their respective fields, and having challenging courses (sucks, but also) is a good way to ensure that our next generation of workers are prepared for the real world. While the academics are definitely there, the extracurricular scene is also great. There's a multitude of sports or organizations to join, so it's easy for students to dip in and out of organizations until they find one that they can be really comfortable in. Many students here are nice and polite, and there's many free resources for students to use to improve themselves, whether it's a personal or academic situation. There's also plenty of events that happen every single day on-campus; it's a great environment to be able to venture out, whenever you have the time for it. Or if there's nothing in UCSD, then the off-campus area is great too! It's San Diego after all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During my college application process, I think I'd be pretty shocked if someone told me that I'd end up attending the University of California-San Diego almost a year later; this was my last-choice school because of the expenses. However, I'm very glad to have chosen this school. The education that I've received so far has been excellent, since it's heavily catered to my passions and interests of social justice and history. I only hope to enhance my knowledge of the world we live in by attending this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You determine your fate at UCSD. If you want to have an amazing four years, it is your job to go out and find those internships, professional connections, clubs, and parties. UCSD has a lot to offer, one just has to go out to obtain those opportunities. So far I am in love with my college experience, I am a second year. But once again it is because I went out of my way to find my niche and obtain some of the many opportunities this school has to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It may be a school for the "Socially Dead", but it has got a big personality. I didn't love my school at first. In fact, I resented it my first year. I felt like I did not belong, After a couple of months, I acclimated to it and fell in love. It may be a quiet school at times but the campus welcomes all walks of life. I've met people I know will be my life-long friends. La Jolla itself is such a beautiful place and there are so many different cultures one gets to interact with. I try to enjoy every moment that I can while in this school.
