Plenty of student organizations to join; only a bus ride to the beach; good restaurants are walking distance; beautiful campus and diverse people.

Sometimes, you have to wait in line for a computer station at the library and sometimes you don't. I think it just depends on the week or time of day. The speed, wireless access, and printer are reliable.

I give it an A- just beacuse of the registration process. Independent undergraduate students should look up the residence guidelines and policies at least three years in advance before attending any UC. I think their financial independence policy needs to be reevaluated.

As a Psychology major I am thus far, satisfied with my education. The professors are accomplished and are active in research. The workload does get to be much if you also work and participate in campus events. But, there plenty of on-campus job opportunities so that is convenient.

There are plenty of apartments to find off-campus. There are service provided through the school with which you can search for roommates as well. My problem is with the cost, which is a big factor in my decision process.

The permit cost is extremely expensive especially for an independent student like myself. The parking structure available for students isn't necessarily the closest to their department buildings, which means one needs to plan for getting to school on time, finding a parking spot, and then also considering to make time for the walk to the classroom!

Mostly transfer students from asia but very diverse

Guys & Girls:
There's the good and the bad, just like any other school. Lots of good looking people though.

The financial aid process was pretty smooth. I received a lot of financial help that made it cheaper to attend UCLA in comparison to other schools I applied to.

The temperature is usually in the mid-seventies year round. Nights are always a little chilly though because of the close proximity of the ocean.

Health & Safety:
Fairly nice area, though there have been some well documented attacks.
College Senior 2013-07-29T20:54:35Z
Great area - right in the heart of LA. Fairly clean and affluent, so a little pricey.

Generally speaking, Westwood has a mild, agreeable climate. Fall is my favorite time of year in terms of weather, but it does tend to rain - intermittently, at least - between November and January.
College Junior 2013-07-29T06:43:57Z
The diversity on UCLA's campus actually shocked me when I first started. There are so many different cultures present on campus and they are all clearly visible and also very much accepted.

I enjoy being in the chemical engineering program. There are many opportunities for research on campus or finding an industry internship over the summer. The curriculum varies widely depending on which professor teaches the course and the workload can be tremendous at times, but studying with other classmates really helps.
College Senior 2013-07-28T17:06:50Z
Westwood provides an amazing dining experience. There a plenty of fast food chains and pricier restaurants, but the smaller restaurants are the best. They give delicious food for low cost, and some give student discounts.
College Senior 2013-07-28T17:01:12Z
The chemical engineering program at UCLA is a little odd. The focus is very theoretical, while other schools have a more hands-on or practical approach. Important topics like statistics and business-related issues are glossed over. The curriculum also varies widely depending on which professor is teaching. However, the job market for engineers is wide open, and UCLA provides many opportunities for landing a job.
College Senior 2013-07-28T16:54:53Z
Since UCLA is a research university, there are many opportunities to find a research position during the summer and through the school year. Pay depends on the position; some pay pretty well for a student job, while others are unpaid. Expect a full-time position during the summer and less hours during the school year.

I am a Biology Major. Let me tell you it is not an easy major because there is a large amount of workload, as well as classes usually are impacted, so it is hard to get into classes that I want. But if you have a passion for the development of life or anything related to life, then this major is for you. Since this one of the most popular majors that are many resourced there for your help. Also volunteer opportunities, as well as internships, become available to a lot of biological students.

UCLA has many majors to offer and in each department there exists on campus many resources to help you out. Hence you are never left alone. It is usually the science classes that teachers have lots of lots of students, and many classes get impacted, as well as be pretty prepared to study because it requires you to know all the subjects that teachers cover. Many teachers have office hours, which means that they open time to help their students out. Many TAs also have office hours. Therefore if you find that a class is difficult to comprehend, then you can always find tutors ready to help you out.

Since UCLA is located near Westwood there are not only local dining you can find, but as well as fine dining. If you decide to embark to a local restaurant, it does not require lots of money, you can find many plated under $10. Many restaurants include a noodle shop, a creperie, In-N-Out, Taco Bell, Flame Broiler, Cafe Bakery Cafe, BJs, and many more. There are also a few hidden fine dining restaurants, including Italian and many Meditteranean food, but the plates for these kind of restaurants start at $20 and up.

Nightlife at UCLA is fairly well, students are able to go out to Westwood, eat with friends, have some ice cream sandwiches from Diddy Reise, or even enjoy a deliciously made burger at In-N-Out. If walking is not on your mind, then there are usually many social events on campus or even on the residence hills. Now if it is a party you want to go to, well the frat parties are the way to go, the only thing is that if you are a guy or a girl with a guy friend, the guy is most likely not allowed at the parties. There are many hookah bars, but not many clubs and bars that I know of, just if you decide to go out to West Hollywood, where the nightlife is raging.
College Senior 2013-07-28T03:08:01Z
There are many libraries available on campus so there's always a place to study as well as an enormous wealth of resources. There are many unique campus events and traditions such as Spring Sing, undie run (after finals), and many others that may be mentioned. North campus has the sculpture garden which is a large green space with surrounding artistic sculptures. Overall the facilities and traditions are very nice.
College Senior 2013-07-28T02:56:14Z
Living on campus can be fun. Not all dorms were created equally though. The majority of students either live in the off-campus apartments or the on-campus dorms. The off-campus apartments are cheaper but don't include a meal plan and are longer walks. On the up-side you save a lot more money. On-campus dorms are closer and don't require as much walking. But again, they are pretty pricey. The social scene can be very cool, especially if you live in the on-campus dorms.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
