The food off campus of UCLA is really good. There are a variety of places such as Diddy Reece, In-N-Out, Enzo's Pizza, Habibi's and Gypsy (2 different popular Hookah restaurants), there is Yamato for sushi, chipotle, Starbucks, and a ton of other restaurants that are the best place to just hang out with your peeps.

The places around the dorm have good food and fun themes but there are limited amount of options and after awhile you begin to get bored of having the same food every week. Around the actual campus where classes are located you cannot use your meal plan to get food you need to pay out of pocket and the food there is expensive so it's good to have breakfast before you head out to class.

Public Transportation is reasonably priced and some buses run all night

A little dated (no air conditioning) but well kept up.

The computers in the labs are really slow, printing on campus isn't free, but the internet speed here is pretty good. However, there isn't WiFi everywhere and it becomes super slow in lecture halls because of the sheer amount of people using it all at the same time.
College Freshman 2013-01-13T07:27:31Z
The food here is scrumptious, I'd recommend going to the Covell Dining Hall, De Neve too, but there are a few bad/not so good ones such as Rendezvous, the Chinese food there is suspiciously like the food you would see at a Panda Express, but if you like Panda, then I suppose you'll like Rendezvous" food. Still have not tried everything yet.

The Dorms are nice but some of them are pretty tiny. We have a lot of great food though that makes up for the small living spaces. Dorm living can be pretty expensive but they are in a convieniant location for getting to class

There are a lot of computer labs on campus and there is always someplace you can go if you need access to a computer. The tech center is also really great at fixing your computer if it isn't working. The only problem is in some building you cannot get wifi or the internet is really slow

The Drug and alcohol scene exists but it isn't everywhere. I don't do drugs so I rarely see drugs on campus

Financial Aid was extremely difficult for me to get! My entire college education is on loans and I am terrified at the debt I will have racked up once I have graduated. My family does not have to money to pay for college and the school promised me $10,000 then took it away.

UCLA is located in West Los Angeles/Holmby Hills. There are quite a few apartments to the west of campus on the other side of fraternity row, but the competition is fierce for these because of their proximity campus. If you don't mind either driving or taking public transit, there are numerous areas west of the 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Venice. Culver City is also a good option; being almost due south of campus and more affordable. Seek and ye shall find. Good luck!

UCLA is directly adjacent to Westwood Village so there are plenty of options including a Whole Foods market; however, things are a pricy and your best option to stay within budget is going to be bringing your own if you're not on a meal plan.
College Sophomore 2013-01-08T01:16:10Z
Plenty of food off-campus. Westwood village is a 15 minute walk from the residential area. It has multiple restaurants ranging from chinese food to tacos and sandwhiches. Joining school clubs will sign you up for student discounts, and price is relatively low, possibly $7-10 a meal.
College Sophomore 2013-01-08T01:11:51Z
The school is relatively loose when it comes to rules. Students are somewhat free to do whatever they want. Control is still held within the campus, but students are very much free and comfortable.

I don't have a car but from what I heard it is about average.
College Senior 2013-01-03T08:32:09Z
The weather doesn't affect our campus at all. I absolutely adore our beautiful campus it has a tranquil vibe, and is amazing every season.

Guys & Girls:
People are very generous, caring, and respectful. I have yet to meet an undesirable classmate that wasn't willing to offer help when asked.

UCLA has a pretty diverse population. It is true that we have a lot of students of asian decent, but walking around campus you see all kinds of faces: Black, White, Latino/a, European, Asian etc. There are also a lot of on-campus organizations dedicated to activism regarding, race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. With such a large student population, there are a few bad seeds who are not very accepting, but the campus as a whole is very supportive and accepting of all groups!

Health & Safety:
Being an urban campus that is open to the public at all times, there is always the possibility that creeps could come around, but thus far I've had no negative experiences with strangers on campus. I never feel unsafe walking around after dark. The campus has its own police department, we have blue light emergency phones all around campus, a Bruin Alert system that sends texts and emails in cases of various emergencies, and there is an escort service (not that kind of escort service!) you can call if you don't feel safe walking home. They'll meet you wherever you are and walk with you to your destination, or even 20 feet behind you if you don't want to be seen with them! I've heard good things about the EMTs as well.

Physiological science it notorious for being the most difficult pre-med major at UCLA. That being said, it (in my opinion) seems like the most interesting. There is no doubt however that the classes involved in this major will leave you more than prepared for the rigors of med school.
College Sophomore 2013-01-01T03:53:32Z
there are plentiful opportunities for internships, especially through clubs
College Sophomore 2013-01-01T03:44:03Z
the classes are interesting but the good ones are always the fastest to go

Being a neuroscience major is difficult but very achievable. I have enjoyed my classes and professors thus far. The only disappointment I have had is that there are not many possibilites for studying abroad. I have yet to figure out a career I want for myself but I do believe it is difficult to get a career without any graduate study after college. Neuroscience requires commitment and a set viewpoint in life.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T19:02:30Z
At first UCLA appears to be a school dominated by Asians and Whites, but I believe it is becoming a more diverse school. Regardless of what ethnicity you are, you will find a place to fit in. The school work is challenging but if you put aside enough time to study, you can make it. It's a cliche but it's true. Don't worry about not having enough time to have fun, you will have plenty of free time. Just be wise. It is difficult to get in but do not think you have to be involved in a gazillion club organizations or be president of the student body in high school to be accepted. Show consistency in your extracurriculars and maintain exceptionally good grades. The SAT and ACT are important but you do not need to score a 2100 to get in, unless you rank 30 or higher in your graduating class, you can score a 1700 and be accepted. Remember, if you don't get in it does not mean you're doomed for life, your bound to have an amazing life as long as you gain higher education and work hard.

There are really good places in westwood. You have a lot of choices in different cuisines.
