I absolutely love UCR because of its diversity in the people, the events, and the numerous other entertainment and involvement options there are here. The people here are nice, motivated, and willing to join you in almost anything. We all are striving to find what we want to become in our lives and are working hard to fulfill our personal, academic, and career goals, so I give this school an 8.5 out of 10.
