Academics at UCR is fast paced because it is on the quarter system, but that doesn't make it easier. Students are expected to learn the material and learn it fast. There are several ways to get help and to further understanding in a subject. Professors make themselves available for one on one discussion during their office hours, TA's are assigned to discussion sections with about 30 students and also have office hours. Some courses even offer supplementary instruction at the learning center, and tutors are available for many subject. However there is a lot more to learn at UCR then...

    There is an immense list of places and people you could go to for help when you don't understand the class. Our concerts have begun to be widely recognized because they are amazing. The welcoming diversity on campus is definitely something you must experience on your own.

    Is a commuter school. The first quarter is pretty interesting, getting to know people and the like. Unfortunately as time goes on, there is less to do, and more difficulties.

    It is small and cozy campus that has wonderful new buildings. However, most classes are weeding out classes and the trees smell like cum.

    UC Riverside has a great diversity of students on campus, although the school spirit for athletics could be better. It is in a great location for Southern California and a beautiful campus.

    UCR is an extremely diverse campus with great weather all year round. It is close enough to LA/OC and class sizes are decent. I was able to graduate in 4 years!

    The campus is a beautiful campus. I love how new stores keep opening up by the campus due to it's growth in student attendance. There's boba, pho, sushi, asian bakery, yogurtland, fastfoods, teriyaki bowls, etc. The campus is known to be one of the smaller UC campuses, but it's growing and even then, I still consider it to be too much walking.

    The professors of the University of California-Riverside are very attentive and kind. The variety of courses offered here are very broad. The campus is not too big but not too small.
