    UCR is definitely a large campus, so consider investing into a bike, skateboard, scooter, hover board, or whatever you like. Another tip would have to be : always talk to your counselor early, and discuss your plans for the future so they can help you to the fullest. Lastly, be careful of the weather! It gets hot and cold really fast down in Riverside because it's a desert so pack clothes with that in mind.

    I highly recommend this school if you are looking for diversity and affordability. UCR gives good financial aid packets to most of the students. The community gives off a welcoming vibe letting you feel at home.

    I encourage incoming students to not be in rush of their major, picking undecided is a nice way to look at other majors of interest and having the first or second quarter of your first year to see which major interests you. Also living on campus your first year is advisable not only will you have a chance of being responsible on your own but you make great friends and relationships that can last you way after you're done with school.

    Depending on your major, get a document that lists all the courses required to compete your major. This helps in keeping track on the courses you need to take. (There are some classes that will fulfill two or three required courses!) Join an organization! There are so many clubs on campus so make sure to look around and find your interest. Join a research lab. If you are planning on attending graduate school or are interested in research yourself, I recommend joining a lab. This will give you some experience in research and a chance to meet new people. It is also a great opportunity to ask for letters of recommendations from the professor in charge and some graduate students. And if you have any questions about graduate school, feel free to ask, they will love to answer those questions. And of course, do the best that you can in your classes! Quarter system does not allow time for procrastination.
