What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have completed one year at UCSD, and I really enjoyed it. There are a few flaws, but what college doesn't have those? I am not a fan of the college system; I believe it isolates students in a way that makes it difficult to congregate as a collective student body. The physical campus design is also rather unappealing in terms of safety and large gatherings. Overall, I really enjoy attending UCSD because the students and faculty are amazing, which makes up for the areas that tend to lack appeal and interest.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California- San Diego is a good school academically but I feel that many important factors are missing. For example, guidance counselors are no help unless you know what you are doing. Since the school is so big and ever expanding if you are not a part of an organization then you can feel alone. Overall the people are really nice and teachers are pretty good, nice and accessible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it and its a fun meme school. Since the first day I came here, I've loved how there are so many opportunities for me to take advantage of, my weekend is always filled with events I've signed up through Facebook and I feel that I always get something great out of it. The teachers here are also great and they are all very passionate at what they are doing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that the University of California, San Diego is a good college for me. There are a few things that could be improved to make the campus a lot better, such as dorm cleanliness, quality of food in the dining halls, the variety of food offered in the markets, and the classrooms/lecture halls. I thought that the lecture sizes are pretty large but completely manageable throughout the year. The campus is also large, and therefore it does take a while to walk from class to class, especially if it's all the way across campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California San Diego is excellent academically, especially for those interested in a Computer Science or other science and technology majors. Although the social atmosphere may be a little lacking in school spirit, UCSD overall has a pretty laid back atmosphere.

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.
