The drug scene is not a big deal at UCLA from what I have seen but they do crack down on those who break the rules

The dining options vary widely and you can get any thing from Jamb Juice to Taco Bell to a salad bar. They offer something for everyone.

There's basically no parking available unless you live in an apartment, and even then it's limited. If you want to have a spot when you live in the dorms, it's about 1,000 per year, I believe, which isn't worth it because you can always take the bus or walk.

There's a variety of fast food places nearby, like Subway, In-n-out, Fat Sals, and some restaurants like CPK, Noodle World, as well as more ethnic and smaller businesses that offer food at really great prices!

We have a dry campus, so nobody actually drinks on campus... in public that we know of anyway. The big drug here is Adderall during midterm and finals time.

Crowded during crunch times, but usually pretty fast and problem free. They're always upgraded to the latest OS systems and in some labs there are even a few Mac options.

The dorm food is AMAZING. I mean like it puts any buffet you know of to shame. UCLA is really lucky to have this food available. The dorms are very nice, clean, and the freshman dorms look like hotels.

I enjoyed my program. I graduated in 2008 so can't remember the specifics.

They have a different varieyt of majors to choose from from general to specific ones.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe at UCLA. At nights it is a bit scary for me since I am a girl, but as long as I'm on the phone with a friend I feel safer.

Los Angeles is a huge town. For the Junior and Seniors there are plenty of interesting bars and nightclubs to attend. For all ages there are the amazing Malibu hikes and Hollywood hikes. Plenty of activities to do. As well as many delicious restaurants to try out.
College Junior 2013-06-12T17:27:36Z
It's an amazing school to attend. It was an honor to be accepted. The workload is pretty heavy though. It is a quarter system and thus classes are shorter. So there is a lot to do in such a small amount of time.
College Junior 2013-06-10T18:38:08Z
In a big city like Los Angeles, there is always something to do fo every type of individual. Whether it is one likes the nigh life and going out or relaxing on the beach, the city fits everyone. There are also a lot of museums, amusement parks, and sports events to go to. The rich ethnic and culture life and diversity allows for a fun and relaxed environment.

My school offers over 300 degrees, giving students the opportunity to study whatever they would like. Also it is located in Los Angeles, a city of many possibilities. The school itself has a rigor academic program that trains and teaches students in their desired fields with world renowned professors.

The Big Blue Bus is really cheap (only 50 cents per ride with the BruinCard) and it goes to essential places like WeHo and Santa Monica. With the other parts of LA, it's pretty hard to travel there, and usually people take the Metro, which is much more expensive ($1.50 per ride, and usually transfers are necessary), and much more inconvenient. If you have a car, that's the best option. But if you're just interested in those normal places that everyone goes, the Big Blue Bus is a great option.

They're pretty lenient, and as long as you're not being recalcitrant and you're not carrying a pound of heroin, you'll be fine. They're not going to bust you for carrying a couple ounces of weed, but they are going to bust you if you're bats*** high and you're being a moron.
College Junior 2013-05-31T23:56:01Z
The options are pretty great, but sometimes variety comes at a price; a lot of the restaurants here in Westwood are pretty upper-scale.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-27T23:54:37Z
There is a lot of visible alcohol use, especially along frat row, but it is easy to avoid all other drugs. If you want to avoid alcohol, living on campus is a great option. Enforcement is strong.
Recent Alumnus 2013-05-27T23:52:32Z
Westwood is amazing!! There are so many restaurants, shops and museums in the area. The beach is fifteen minutes away and Beverly Hills is ten minutes in the opposite direction. Anything you're interested in, they have!

Coming from the Midwest that has the worst of both worlds (sweltering, humid summers and freezing winters), Los Angeles was a shock to my system. The first 8 weeks of my first quarter at UCLA were literally straight weeks of sunny, slightly breezy, 60s to 70s. Unbelievable.

Most freshman get sorted into triples that were meant to be doubles, but if you're in one of the more newly renovated (a.k.a. every one except Sproul Hall) or newly constructed residence halls (e.g. Sproul Cove), the dorm rooms are pretty nice. The communal bathrooms are cleaned twice a day, which makes them a much better option than shared bathrooms between two rooms. Sunset Village has more spacious rooms with private bathrooms, and it is the most quiet atmosphere, but there's a price tag for that serenity. De Neve Plaza is older than the residence halls, and they are also quiet with private bathrooms, but they seem to be a little more social. Avoid Hitch and Saxon Suites if at all possible. Literally run-down, bug-infested, dimly-lit suites that are not at all worth the extra money.

Physiological Science is a TOUGH major. Prepare yourself for medical school like training by various instructors who teach in very different ways for a much shorter time period than in CC's. Keep up with the work and check in with Inna Gergel the counselor of the major.

There are many groups that unite together to make the most of being diverse in not-too diverse campus and so it's alive within those groups but we still have a long way to go to be as prevalent within the student body.
