UCLA is a very diverse university. As a minority myself, I feel like I belong on campus through them many clubs and organizations. There is a club for everyone. Also, UCLA offers many classes that aim to bring awareness about diversity such as Chicana/o Studies, African American studies, LGBT studies, etc.

Since it is in the center of Los Angeles it is very easy to get around on public transportation. You can pretty much take one bus to your destination, whether it be to the mall, beach, or Beverly Hills. UCLA also offer students rides after 6pm to any part of campus, campus housing or apartments.

Like most places in Los Angeles, UCLA is mostly sunny. So if you enjoy the sun then this is a great place to be. However, like Southern California weather, it does randomly rain here and there. Other than that you won't need to buy expensive jackets to stay warm. One or two hoodies will do you just fine. There is a lot of stuff to do outdoors and indoors around campus so the weather, more than often, suits the occasion. Students take the bus to the beach or go shopping in local Westwood shops.

GEtting into my department was something i casually got into by the classes i was interested in during community college. The most important criteria for admission is consistent grades and the required courses needed for the major. Nothing to abnormal. Stay consistent with your grades at community college because it can get difficult when you also have to work and study.

Im starting to love it more and more everyday. I surrounded by amazing museums that can help me with better opportunities.My parents are not very thrilled and wished i pursued the medical field, but i feel it is important to follow my heart and my dreams. In terms of finding a job i hope to land an internship and me the right people in order to get where i need to go.

Campus life is amazing! There's always something to do and many great food places.

Parking is too expensive so I don't have a pass. Most people buy parking off campus if they go home.

I loved being a neuroscience major. It was a fairly small major as far as the life sciences go and I loved how the whole program was so cutting edge. It is very research based/heavy. I had no problem getting a job straight out of college and have now been accepted to medical school so it prepared me well for where I wanted to go!

UCLA has amazing facilities. The John Wooden Center Gym is beautiful with great workout space and offers many workout classes. There are tons of libraries on campus which suit different study styles (noise level, tables vs. couches, etc.) Student spirit is very apparent at sporting events as well as during traditional events like Spring Sing and rivalry week.

Like any university, there was a lot of alcohol present at UCLA. Most of this was off campus (in apartments/frat houses). There are plenty of people on campus who do not partake in these activities though so it is easy to avoid if you want to.

I loved almost every aspect of UCLA. The campus is beautiful and the facilities are top notch. There is ready access to research opportunities, volunteer programs, and personal wellness resources. The faculty are all well known and respected in their fields. I loved how many events took place on campus (both university sponsored as well as privately sponsored) that students had access to.
The only negative to UCLA is the huge class size. You really have to go out of your way to get to know professors (especially in science courses) and it is easy to be struggling without anybody taking notice. UCLA is a perfect university for a self motivated student who is willing to speak up for themselves.

The drug scene is visible only in smoking but any other drug is pretty much off campus. Those who do drugs are far off on the boundaries of the school or really isolated areas.

Guys & Girls:
UCLA has many types of girls and guys. I have seen athletic, jocks, southerners, country, preppy, nerds, geeks, and many international students. Girls are so different from style to personality.

Sports in UCLA are a major part of the students experience. Football and Basketball are the most popular sports and students are quite spirited. The John Wooden Center is the place to be to get fit and attend a variety of classes like Zumba. The gym has plenty of bikes, ellipticals and treadmills. Most campus dorm buildings have gyms. Trainers and physical therapists are available for students.

Health & Safety:
I usually feel safe but when I see the signs posted on the dorm doors that there has been a crime, that's when I feel unsafe. That happens probably... once or less a quarter.

The campus is generally very accepting to everything but the only thing I've noticed on campus is some racism and possible sexism.
College Senior 2013-03-18T18:57:48Z
there are a lot of options right outside of campus particularly Italian restaurants. the hardest thing to find are decent Mexican restaurants.

Heat in Los Angeles fairly bearable and rain is usually not a major problem though occasionally it causes some flooding in areas of the campus particularly if they are near sites under construction. The only bad aspect of the weather is how irregular it can be regardless of season.
College Senior 2013-03-18T18:27:22Z
there is much to see around the campus and if the storefronts and theaters of Westwood are not your thing, Hollywood and Santa Monica are just one fairly inexpensive bus ride away. However, if you crave a little calm and solitude outside of the campus libraries you might have to search a little hard.
College Junior 2013-03-16T04:13:50Z
there aren't clubs near by to walk to. But the campus have a many events you can attend
College Junior 2013-03-16T04:07:04Z
I give an A because this campus provide free public transportation. I love bruin bus!!

I'm a Studio Art major and the students do really impressive and progressive projects here. Major down side: I've had two non-permanent faculty instructors and I would say both were highly NOT qualified to teach at all never mind at UCLA...

Unique to UCLA is being in LA. Westwood is a great little village to hide in but then you get to explore LA if you choose to. Public transportation or by your own means, this is where a lot is going on.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
