Party Scene: I have only ever been a couple times, and maybe it's because i am a not a party person. But there was only once that a house was so crowded we didn't even bother going in.

Scholarships: You may be offered or "win" a scholarship from the school, but if you receive Financial Aid then you will never get that money from the Blue and Gold Scholarship.

Campus Food: The fact that I am vegan, and can't exchange eggplant for avocado on the ONLY veggie sandwich offered at BCaf....the employee was disgracefully rude.

College Freshman

Athletics: I have not attended any games besides a few baseball games. I do know, however that this university has a lot of school spirit and athletics are a huge part of this college life.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have only lived on-campus and do not know much about the off-campus living experience.

4 College Freshman

Administration: This campus is not extremely strict like when it comes to visitors, having parties, or just even being able to express your own thoughts freely. They do, however, take safety and security very seriously. There are constantly securities and police at night to keep the students safe and there is absolutely no tolerance for drugs or sexual harassment.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not gone to any huge parties like the frat parties or apartment parties, just small get-togethers in suites or university apartments, so this does not really apply to me. Even though it does not apply to me, I do hear that there are great parties in some of the fraternities, depending on which ones, and in some of the apartments.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was not extremely difficult or stressful and got most of the financial aid needed and all the financial aid needed once I got a loan. I got the loan I needed with absolutely no problem, I just wish I didn't have to take one out my first year, I am hoping that with scholarships, that won't be necessary my second year.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles and on the list of America's top colleges, UCLA is a school for those who want to have a blast while focusing on schoolwork. Although course registration is a battle, classes are crowded, and the registrar is impersonal, students praise the wisdom of their professors and feel that a UCLA degree will open major doors in the job market. The quarter system moves fast and tests tend to sneak up stealthily, but this allows for more experimentation when choosing courses and far less boredom. With more than 100 majors to choose from, the campus is bustling with students of all ideologies, races, and academic interests, making rousing discussions an everyday experience.

One of the nation's few top-notch universities that isn't private, UCLA is a place for those who want to learn more than a textbook contains. There’s pressure to shine socially and academically among the approximately 25,000 high-achieving Bruin undergrads, but there are plenty of campus organizations that give students a go-to friend group in the midst of the giant student body. However, it's up to the students to scout out and take advantage of all opportunities because nothing is handed to UCLA students—they must learn to navigate around red tape, persist through budget cuts, find parking and housing in Westwood's winding streets, and steer toward success. And how do they celebrate their successes? Parties! Whether through the semi-dominant Greek system or at a laid-back dorm gathering, UCLA students know how to put the books aside for a night. Overall, Bruins play nearly as hard as they work, making UCLA one of the most well-rounded schools imaginable.
