What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a chill place with an amazing community if you join the student organizations and clubs. The people in the organizations and clubs are very friendly and care about their members. The classes are challenging, but the math courses are too challenging in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall so far University of California-San Diego is pretty great. It is a huge campus with many different people and cultures that you can meet and experience. There are many different types of events held each week and it is basically what you put into it is what you get out of it. I find most of the professors interesting and they really try and help the student succeed, but with the quarter system it does seem to go by pretty fast but there are resources that you can use like Teaching and Learning Commons, Women’s Center Tutoring, Teaching Assistant hours, etc. you just have to use your resources wisely.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCSD's campus is amazing, there is much to do and events every week. My calendar is filled with overlapping things so I'm always on my feet or getting ready to head out and do something new. The campus is huge, so you're always walking which keeps your legs toned as you walk from one side to another for class or for your favorite on campus dining hall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a second-year student at UCSD and I love it here. I feel like I belong, especially after joining 3 on-campus clubs to help with my future career and to have fun. Getting involved with some sort of group on campus is key to enjoying your time here. There are tons to choose from so it shouldn't be too difficult to find one that you like.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though I am currently an enrolled Freshman and have not yet had the full college life experience, I have participated in a 5 week program over the summer. Through my time here so far, I can firmly state that this school is absolutely teeming with excitement and amazing opportunities to get involved and become successful. As a world-renowned research university, students have great access to top-tier research projects right at the tip of their fingers. There are highly respected and accessible organizations and clubs on campus featuring all forms of interests and career fields, and they really prepare the UCSD student for future ambitions. Personally, I came into UC San Diego with lower expectations and a skeptical mindset. I was not very impressed with the physical attractiveness of the campus, or the long walking distances from one place to another; however, through my experiences here so far, I have to admit that this school is the right home for me to thrive and succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school definitely my top pick. I visited this school so many times because My sister attends the school and I occasionally visit her and I have fell in love with the school. The first time I went was her first year of attending UCSD and this was 2016 and I really liked it because I felt like it was a friendly enviornment the school is not to hectic and I like the housing because I have been inside the dorms really nice and big.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first came to UC San Diego, I didn't quite know what to expect as I was not super familiar with the campus or knew much about the school. I did not decide to go here until the last day as I was going to go to USC instead. However, I passed up my dream school after my moms coworker talked so highly about UC San Diego including the excellent academics and how highly academic there biology program is. He said since I was a pre-med student, UC San Diego is the college to be especially since they are well known for the biological sciences. Now that my first year is over and I am about to start my second year, I am so glad I passed up USC and I know San Diego is the place for me to be. Everyone on campus is so nice and friendly, the staff always greet you in the morning and there are so many places to study around campus including views of the beach. All the students are hardworking and deserve to be there because they have that special something about them. The professors really know how to explain and break it down so the students can understand and if is something is confusing they will try to help you in office hours or set up a meeting where they can assist you. They really care and want each student to succeed. The only negative thing I have to say about this school is I wish we had a football team because it would greatly improve the social life and really unite all the students even more, plus football games are really fun to watch. I love my school and cannot wait to finish my remaining years there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of San Diego is the college that I liked the most out of all the colleges I applied to. Their campus is huge, so venturing out of campus is like a two day journey (i'm kidding). The area is very safe and reassuring, though you should always be cautious. I love the community here, they're nice and welcoming. Not socially dead, unless you don't try.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is very beautiful and is a very educational based school. Mostly everyone there is to learn and is very driven to succeed. There are many facilities to go if you ever need help. If you do not feel safe, you can ask and call a certain number for transportation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCSD is on the verge of innovation and prosperity. It is a great college that has numerous resources and opportunities for careers and experience. As a sophomore, who dreams of combining laughter and theater therapy into medicine UCSD has helped shape what I want to do in life. The resources help you prepare for medical school and has a variety of career fairs with professionals that help you discover other career possibilities. In addition, the campus is safe due to voluntary students who work with campus security that ride their bikes at night. There is also a thing called Tritonrides that will pick you up from campus and take you back closer to your dorm or any location on campus at night. There is an escort that will walk you to your dorm or location at night. Furthermore, the dining halls are good and distinguished by their college. This is because UCSD is comprised of six college communities and allows students to feel connected to their college and university. Lastly, UCSD was ranked top 15 public research universities in the nation and number 2 money cost. It is a fun school if you participate and engage with the activities. Although it may not seem like a party school, you can still have fun with friends.
