Most Helpful Review for University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine)

The professors at UC Irvine really care about you. Although the lectures are quite large, professors always take plenty of their time for office hours and you can even schedule appointments with them if those hours don't fit your schedule. The class readings are relevant and although they are often long, you learn so much from each one!

    UCI is a very inclusive campus. The faculty, administration, and student leaders all help to make our campus as friendly, accepting, encouraging, and engaging as possible. As a first-year in my second quarter at UCI, I feel very much at home on campus and love every bit of my UCI experience so far!

    From what I've seen in my research, this school seems great! The campus is beautiful and the majors are far better than some of the other UC's I have seen. I would give this school a 4.5/5 stars

    A rigorous school with a relaxing/calm environment, meant for studying. Lots of asians, not very culturally diverse, and has a lot of foreign exchange students. Campus is beautiful and leaning towards studies.

    UC Irvine's campus is beautiful, and restaurants are just a short walk across the bridge to University Town Center or at the Student Center. Classes are challenging and interesting, depending on your classes and teachers. You will meet a myriad of different people here, especially asians.

    Most schools are expensive, but given that Irvine is one of the safest cities in California, and that UCI is a great school, I think the cost is fair. If you're a science major, this school is perfect for you, since many of the faculty are constantly conducting research on a variety of topics. I'm a Psych major, and even though it's not a hard science, there are plenty of opportunities for research.

    UCI is a great school if you are more concerned with academics; not really for partying if you want to do that. There are a lot of free resources on campus and several friendly people here on campus. Also UCI has a great environment with a huge park in the middle of the campus and it is not too far from several shopping centers and the beach.
