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.

    UCR has a very nice and open minded community of students and faculty. There's a lot of different ethnic groups accepted onto campus, so it's considered one of the most diverse. Since UCR is inland, off campus activities may be difficult to attend but there are many fun events and on campus organizations that you can have fun going to.

    I had such an amazing experience at UCR. The professors, graduate students, being active in organizations, being involved in research labs, and the classes have helped me grow and has prepared me for graduate school. I am proud to say that I am a highlander.

    The minute I entered the UC Riverside campus for the very first time, I was overwhelmed by a feeling that told me I was meant to be there. While I have only been attending for a short period of time, UC Riverside is home. From campus life to dorm life, the UCR environment makes it easy for just about anyone to build their life and home away from home.

    UC Rejects? Please. This school has been vastly underrated for years, but it is finally beginning to turn some heads; great academics and an overall sense of welcoming make UCR a great place to be.
