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 in the heart of Southern California. Beautiful beaches like Newport and Laguna are a short drive away, amazing food ranging from Vietnamese food in Westminster to Mexican food in Santa Ana. Great fit for anyone who wants to be challenged academically in the sciences, given a different perspective in psychology, or learn how to be an entrepreneur in the business school on campus.

    uc irvine is a diverse campus. its location is great because it's not too far from the beach or shopping centers. most classes are engaging, fun classes, but enrollment windows could be tricky.

    i love this school! the entire campus is constructed in a circle, making it much easier to get around. there are many food options on campus and three sstarbucks (a selling point for me). uci is a great campus!

    I have just been accepted and I'm super excited to attend. The price seems decent because from what I have heard about the academics, it will definitely be worth it as a science major. Reading these reviews make me feel like I'll be at home while attending UC Irvine, which I hope is true because California is quite far from my home state of New York!

    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!

    Overall, a great school, especially in the Liberal Arts departments. Campus is fairly peaceful and prettier than most. Very safe; people on campus are usually friendly and trustworthy.
