I'm currently a first-year in the Fall Quarter, and so far the classes I have to take require a lot of work on my part.

Guys & Girls:
There are enough pretty girls and cute guys around, but sometimes everyone's in their own little world and it's hard to approach someone when they're speed walking to class or on their smartphones.

We have a bunch of computer labs and printing labs all over the dorms and campus, so finding a computer lab is not a problem. Depending on the lab, black and white printing is about 10 cents, and color is 15 cents. Some labs give free printing. Most labs close between 8pm-12am. There is one lab open 24/7 by the dorms, but during midterm/finals season it gets super crowded. There is Wi-Fi everywhere on campus, and it is pretty fast. You definitely need a personal computer. Almost every class you take here will require assignments to be done online, and there are so many resources professors give online, so a personal computer is worth it. A personal printer is not worth it, because there are printing labs, and when it comes down to it, buying your own print cartridges add up, when you can go to a free printing lab on campus.

UCLA is in the middle of Beverly Hills and Bel Air, and not that far from Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Venice. It is a school in the middle of city lights, media, a place where celebrities are occasionally spotted, and often a place where people from all over the city come to visit and hangout. If you are into a big city school in the center of one of the biggest cities in America, UCLA is the place to be.

UCLA's dining halls are ranked as number 2 in college dining hall food, with only Stanford's Culinary school being #1. There is a lot of variety here on campus. Each of our dining halls are themed: one of our halls has Italian and pastas, another has Mediterranean, we just opened one last year that is Asian/Indian food, and there are working on opening up a new one next school year. We also have three cafes if you are in a hurry and can't sit in a dining hall for long. In addition, we have restaurants on campus that take cash instead of dining swipes. After your freshman year the food does get old, which is why it gets and A- and not an A+, but by junior year most people have moved off campus, and by then you go back to missing the food.

It is gorgeous all the time! It rarely rains and is at the least 75 degrees through November. The sun is always out and you can plan on going to the beach several weekends.

I am involved in Greek Life and I absolutely love it! Rush is a little bit stressful, but there is no pressure to conform to a sorority or fraternity and almost everyone who really wants to join will find a good place. It is not a huge part of campus, so you are still able to make time for other clubs. I found my best friends through my sorority. For boys, joining a frat is the easiest way to get into a party.
College Sophomore 2012-11-08T20:57:50Z
Parties are either at Frat houses or apartments and are every thursday and saturday nights. There is normally not that much going on on Fridays, but exceptions exist. The club scene is fun but skip it if you are under 21 and go to the frats cause the booze is free and you don't need a cab.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T21:29:31Z
The campus is so huge that there is always something to do, you just have to have the motivation to go out and look for that something. Students are always around advocating for their clubs and groups, and the school puts on many job and activity fairs. Students are always hanging out around campus and off campus as well, so there are options for every type.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T21:27:39Z
The campus strictness is average. As long as you are respectful there shouldn't be any problems. Parties and frats parties aren't even busted often. If you are underage be cautious but overall the strictness is fine to live with and still have lots of fun.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T21:25:39Z
There are many computer labs all of campus, and printing is of average cost. Wifi is available almost everywhere. Everyone should definitely have their own computer.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T21:22:53Z
I am an out of state student so tuition is VERY expensive, but the UC schools don't give out much money because they don't have much at the moment. Loans are available though.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T21:20:56Z
The dorms at UCLA may not be the most spacious or beautiful, but they are always clean and well maintained. Dining halls are close to all of the dorms and for the most part, the dorms are social. Plazas and suites are said to be less social because people aren't forced to interact as much.

UCLA offers a variety of programs in every area you would think of. Not only does it offer high quality research programs but also gives you the opportunity to get your hands-on it as well. It gives you the opportunity of joining many clubs, internships, and study-abroad programs. It allows you to meet people from around the world and gives you the opportunity of meshing with them as well.

Parking permits are too expensive. On the other hand it does have an easy access and definitely has a lot of space.
College Junior 2012-11-05T21:13:35Z
The drug scene and alcohol visibility is pretty noticeable over the weekend. It usually starts on Thursdays when all the fraternities throw parties.
College Senior 2012-11-05T19:09:11Z
It tends to be a lot cooler than the more inland regions bc it is coastland however there are a lot of hills so walking to class can get quite warm.
College Senior 2012-11-05T19:07:29Z
In terms of alcohol there is not very visible as it is illegal to have it in public and half of UcLa college students are under 21. However you will find an abundance of alcohol at college parties, fraternities, etc. As for drugs the most common would be marijuana; probably bc this is California.
College Sophomore 2012-11-03T05:25:32Z
It matters if you like living in the "Greek" life. If may be for you, but only 15% of UCLA is part of a fraternity or sorority.
College Sophomore 2012-11-03T05:08:46Z
The athletics are great, especially for UCLA! The school has the most NCAA titles, and are getting more each year.
College Sophomore 2012-11-03T04:44:34Z
The classes present offer a variety of things to do. They can be hands on, cause you to think a lot, or a lot or writing is required. Anyone will be able to find their fit for classes at UCLA.
College Sophomore 2012-11-03T04:41:20Z
The buildings hold a classic look, but are fitted with modern luxuries.
College Sophomore 2012-11-03T04:39:33Z
The school is very diverse, and allows for the flexibility to choose what you want to study. There are no social pressures, and everything can be found within minutes. You know the sports will succeed, and the academics are top notch too!
College Junior 2012-11-02T22:24:18Z
Never had any trouble with UCPD. Never really heard of any of my friends having trouble with UCPD. As long as you use common sense you should be fine. However, they are going to institute a smoking ban in April 2013. I'm unsure on how strict the enforcement will be, but I'm still sad about it.

Guys & Girls:
Average, I guess. There's a lot of variation. Greek life is bigger than it seems like it is from the outside. I wouldn't say UCLA girls or boys are more/less physically attractive than the general American 18-25 population on average. Lots of Asians, if that's what you're into. I can't say I've met somebody truly interesting here.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
