At UCLA, each academic term, or quarter, lasts for only ten weeks. With that said, you'll definitely learn what you're made of when attending this school. Each quarter will pass by very quickly, so you'll be forced to learn how to juggle classwork with extracurricular activities. Furthermore, you'll be brought into a special community of talented people and will learn how to be humble because you'll be surrounded by students that are just as intelligent and hard-working as you are. I definitely learned to be more modest in my first year, and I'm grateful...

Student life is definitely thriving, with student groups for just about anything you can think of.» Read More
