Athletics here are a big thing, especially football and basketball, but lots of other sports as well. There are really great facilities for all the athletic teams and sports, both varsity and IM. The athletes at this school do get a lot of preferential treatment with regards to classes, schedules, and other things.
I'm not involved with Greek life, but I have friends who are. If it is something you're interested in, it's definitely there and can be an integral part of your experience. If it's not for you, it doesn't dominate the campus and there are plenty of other ways to be social and get involved within the school community. Also, I've heard that Greek life is kind of expensive to participate in.
I'm currently undeclared at UCLA, which can be good and bad. The quarter system allows for more exploration and trying out new areas that you might want to major in, but it also goes by very quickly, and can be difficult to keep up in. In addition, the school is very large, so it can be difficult to connect with professors. In this area, it is a very self-driven process - the professors, TAs and resources are available, but if you don't seek them out they will not come to you.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.Close
