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.

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...

    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.

    The university really has a good student services such as the academic resource center, chicano student programs, and the Student Recreation Center. They also provide us with great opportunities to join a club, organizations, communities where we are always in family.
